Indianapolis City Ballet Announces Evening with the Stars 2011

Indianapolis City Ballet is proud to announce that international ballet star and soloist from American Ballet Theatre Daniil Simkin leads the roster of stars for the annual Evening with the Stars performance on September 10 at the Murat Theatre at Old National Centre. Daniil’s performance last year in “Le Corasire Pas de Deux” (with Boston Ballet’s Misa Kuranaga) was astonishing in its technical bravura and his signature “Les Bourgeois” brought down the house.

Daniil Simkin will also be performing on the Young Stars of Ballet program on Friday, September 9 at 7:30PM at the Murat Theatre at Old National Center. “We want to give these young and emerging stars of ballet an opportunity to perform on a program and participate in rehearsals with today’s stars so when I mentioned the Young Stars program to Daniil, he graciously and excitedly joined the program - as he said ‘I’m happy to do it for the kids’” said ICB producer Kevin Hesse..
Daniil was born in Russia, raised in Germany and schooled in ballet at home by his mother, a former dancer. A gifted academic student, he studied at a prestigious school inWiesbaden Germany and trained after school. Without the typical ballet school recital schedules, his artistic goals were instead set and tested on the competition circuit. He won first prize and Gold Medal at Varna in 2004, the Grand Prix inHelsinki in 2005 and Senior Gold at the USA International Competition in 2006. He joined the Vienna State Opera in 2006 and American Ballet Theatre in 2008 where he dances soloist and principal roles. Daniil is a renowned guest artist with major companies in Europe and Asia and a star performer in galas around the world
