The SW Committee CCA welcomes Yulia Llina from the Denton Dance Conservatory. Yulia comes from the Kiev Ballet School in Kiev, Ukraine. After graduating with honors in 1999, Ms. Llina danced as a soloist with the St. Petersburg State Academic Ballet Theatre under Boris Eifmann, and then the St. Petersburg State Ballet Theatre under L. Jacobson. In 2010, Ms. Llina was awarded a diploma of recognition from the St. Petersburg Committee of Culture for the preservation of the best traditions and creative contribution to the development of Russian ballet. She has danced leading roles in “Giselle,” “Swan Lake,” “Carmen,” “Romeo and Juliet,” “The Nutcracker,” and other more contemporary works. Throughout her dance career, Ms. Llina performed extensively touring Europe, the United States, Canada, South America, and Asia. She has contributed immensely to the Denton dance community and we look forward to having her join us!
