Building Bridges to a Shared Future

Recognizing that we share one world and our future is interconnected, BSF relies on the common bond of dance to build a transnational dialogue of mutual understanding, respect, and shared values. Through in-person and virtual programming centered on exploring different styles of dance intrinsic to each country’s heritage, participants learn about each other’s culture, values, people, and country. Bridges to Shared Future is an ongoing collaboration between A.S.E., the Bolshoi Ballet Academy, and students and educators of dance throughout the United States and Russia.
