Taglioni European
Ballet Award
Vladimir Malakhov, founder and former director of the State Ballet Berlin, established the Malakhov Foundation in January 2014. His non-profit organisation aims to support ballet dancers in several areas of need such as grant aids for education, further training, medical needs and provision of maintenance grants. One of the first major projects is the holding of the Taglioni - European Ballet Award, which will honour extraordinary ballet dancers, directors, choreographers and designers in Berlin on 27 September.

Le Chat

Born in Bow in East London, Le Chat (aka Malakhov due to spectacular leaps) spent the first year of his life on the streets where he got into lots of fights with other cats - this explains the lacy edge to his left ear - until he was rescued. Seeking a career in dance he auditioned for Dance Europe and is now in charge of Dance Europe's tweets - when not eating, sleeping or patrolling the neighbourhood.

Cast Changes
La Scala has announced cast changes for its run of Nureyev’s Don Quixote in September. The original line up, which included two guest partnerships - Svetlana Zakharova with Denis Matvienko and Natalia Osipova with Vladimir Vasiliev - has been abandoned as Matvienko is injured and Zakharova has withdrawn for personal reasons. Instead, Tamara Rojo has been invited to dance with Vasiliev (17, 19 and 24 September) and Leonid Sarafanov with Osipova (22, 25 and 27 September). The staging is under the supervision of Maina Gielgud. LA SCALA CALENDAR
