Aki and Wim have been dancing together for 20 years in a symbiotic partnership. We shall be celebrating this with a special gala performance of Onegin on 15 November.
In 2007 principals Wim Vanlessen and Aki Saito got the award for best duo from ‘Les Etoiles de Ballet 2000’. In the same year there honoured by Dance Europe Magazine for their Extraordinary Partnership.
They have been dancing together for twenty years since they met at the Royal Balletschool in Antwerp and together they did not just become principals with the Royal Ballet Flanders, but they are also audience favorites at international galas.
This special jubilee of twenty years of an extraordinary partnership will be celebrated with a special gala performance of Onegin.
