Keenan Kampa’s Kitri Debut

Perfection. (photo by Gene Schiavone)

We always knew Keenan Kampa was going places—literally and figuratively. The gorgeous ballet dancer, who graced our March 2012 cover, is one of the few American alums of St. Petersburg’s prestigious Vaganova Academy, the feeder school for the world-famous Maryinsky Ballet. After wowing Beantown audiences during a stint at Boston Ballet, Keenan joined the Maryinsky last year, and she’s already one of the company’s rising stars. Talk about a ballet jet-setter!

And Keenan’s getting the opportunity of a lifetime tomorrow night, when she’ll dance her first Kitri in the Maryinsky’s Don Quixote. (Her big break is an even bigger deal at the super-hierarchical Maryinsky, where corps members like Keenan rarely get shots at leading roles.)

Congratulations, Keenan—and merde for tomorrow!
