The Anton Dolin Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving the creative heritage of Britain’s famed ballet dancer and choreographer Sir Anton Dolin, was founded November 2017 in Berlin, Germany.
Created by Sir Anton Dolin’s protégé Jelko Yuresha, the Foundation will promote Sir Anton’s historical impact and significance as Britain’s first Danseur Noble and co-founder of Festival Ballet which is now the world renowned English National Ballet. The Foundation will also preserve and promote the unique creative heritage and productions of Sir Anton Dolin’s work.
Dolin’s ballets Pas de Quatre and Variations for Four, as well as his productions of Giselle, Cinderella and La Peri will now be available only through the Foundation and through their preservation of the authentic choreographic and stylistic versions
The Foundation will publish materials relating to the life and work of Sir Anton Dolin on its website, on social media, in print. The Foundation will also promote ballet performances of his notable works and conduct Festivals showcasing his outstanding cultural impact, making it more accessible to a wider audience. To enable the Foundation to realize its projects, it will be inviting sponsors, other cultural institutions, ballet companies, and the media to support its aims.
