Now in its fourth season under the guidance of Artistic Director Natasha Middleton-Kettebekov, The Media City Ballet Company (MCB) is dedicated to providing Burbank and the surrounding communities with quality live ballet productions, utilizing the inspired and creative talents of the local community, as well as professionals from around the world. MCB is the only ballet company in Los Angeles presenting performances in the tradition and philosophy of the legendary Ballet Russe de Serge Diaghilev. Natasha Middleton-Kettebekov’s grandmother, Elena Wortova, was a Soloist in the original Balle Russe, which included other legendary dancers like Anna Pavlova, George Balanchine, Alexandra Danilova and Vaslav Nijinsky. Middleton-Kettebekov’s father, Andrei Tremaine, was a principal dancer with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo, and soloist with the Ballet Nacional de Mexico, the Colon Opera Ballet of Buenos Aires and the Paris Opera Ballet. Natasha Middleton-Kettebekov, a “Ballet Russe Baby,” was a Prima Ballerina for her father’s ballet company, Pacific Ballet Theatre, as well as a member of the Joffrey II Ballet Company in New York City, before taking on the responsibilities of Artistic Director for Media City Ballet. MCB also has a school called the Media Dance Centre, which provides training and instruction in not only ballet, but also in jazz, tap, Flamenco, Hip-Hop, Folk, Swing and Salsa. In addition, the ballet company’s Outreach Division works with schools and local service groups to entertain and instruct the community on the art of ballet and dance.
