ElsyDance Releases Tribute to Kirill Matveev


Kirill Matveev was a beloved ballet teacher who died in 2011 at the age of 50 of a heart attack. This video concludes with a tribute by author Sun Huh which was performed at the February 2011 Experimental Performance Evening at Ballet Arts Center on 56th Street in New York City. The video originally aired on MNN on May 27, 2011 and is occasionally re-broadcasted, the latest one being on November 30, 2012. The video opens with ballet class by Kenny Larson, then Elsy Contreras’ Drums, followed by several short performances from the Experimental set, Solo De Amor, La Fortuna, and the tribute. The video closes in the Norman Lear tribute tradition of closing credits on a black background and silent audio.

I have dedicated my entire life to dance, have studied under and interpreted the various styles and techniques of a wide assortment of teachers and choreographers. I created my own unique style, emphasizing new sensations and movements. The Mexican press praised my dance as having the greatest quality.
