FREE Holiday Dance Event

Catskill Mountain Foundation and Victoria Rinaldi invite you to a Holiday Dance Event featuring two very talented local student dancers Justin Valentine and Frieda Handelsman, and students from Valentina Kozlova’s Dance Academy, NYC.

The short performance includes excerpts from “The Nutcracker”. A Festive Holiday Reception follows the performance.

Victoria Rinaldi is a former ballerina at the Metropolitan Opera. Valentina Kozlova is a former star of the Bolshoi Ballet and New York City Ballet. Most of these young dancers will have just completed their performance of “The Nutcracker” at Symphony Space, NYC where Justin Valentine is dancing the role of The Prince.

Catskill Mountain Foundation is pleased to provide support for these young dancers who are working with Victoria Rinaldi over the winter. Justin Valentine is preparing for an international ballet competition in New York City in May and will be traveling with Ms. Kozlova’s Ballet School to St. Petersburg, Russia where he will also participate in a major competition.

This event is part of a dance initiative by Catskill Mountain Foundation to provide support for emerging dancers and choreographers.
