Condemnation has additionally come from lots of these employed throughout the dance business, who’ve added their voices to the outrage felt in regards to the state of affairs, particularly these dancers, academics, choreographers and administrators who’re both Ukrainian by start or are Russian with sturdy hyperlinks to the nation.
