Mikhail baryshnikov: Russian Dancer Extraordinaire

55 Vanderbilt Parkway
Dix Hills, New York 11746


Presented by Hofstra Professor James Kolb. Defecting from the Soviet Union in 1974, Mikhail Baryshnikov had an extraordinary dance career in the west, which actually continues into the 21st Century—modern dance and acting have now replaced ballet, but his career continues at the age of 65. This presentation will explore his power as a dancer. Thursday, 02-12-2015, 2:30PM – 4:00PM. Free registration begins December 27.
