“I love AllyCat! This video is absolutely lovely and will find its way to the hearts of many children.
I am so proud to be part of it!”
-Prima Ballerina Diana Vishneva (ABT and The Mariinsky)
“The brilliance of the AllyCat approach is that it is entirely child-friendly, yet the class is the real thing and gives them divine role models in Diana Vishneva and AllyCat. Diana Vishneva’s grace, technique and sublime serenity make her one of today’s truly great ballet artists. AllyCat is a true charmer and lovely dancer whose passion for ballet is absolutely contagious. Her approach to ballet is open hearted and loving. Altogether, the video is inspired and in light of recent cutbacks to arts programs for children – it is both a necessity and a blessing!”
-Elizabeth Kaye, author of American Ballet Theatre: A 25 Year Retrospective
