Kozlovs and Stars
University Musical Society
Power Center
8 p.m., Saturday, October 29
By Ellen Rieser
T HE OCTOBER 29TH arrival of
Leonid and Valentina Kozlov and
company in Ann Arbor as part of their
national tour'promises to be one of the
glittering high points of the University
Musical Society's 1983-84 season.
The recent cutbacks in the National
Endowment for the Arts' -dance
touring/dance residency program have
resulted in less visits to smaller com-
munities and less tours by companies
overall. It seems that fewdance com-
panies can afford to make the trip to
Ann Arbor anymore. Nevertheless,
with the Kozlovs' concert, Ann Arbor,
dance fans can rejoice in an oppor-
tunity to see live some of the people
they ordinarily only read about.
For those of you who may have
forgotten (or are not ballet trivia buf-
fs), the Kozlovs are two Soviet ballet
dancers who defected to the United
States in 1979 while on tour with the
Bolshoi - the same tour from which
Alexandr Godunov had earlier defec-
After Godunov's defection, Soviet
security on the Bolshoi's dancers
tightened greatly. Furthermore, the
Kozlovs' knew that the KGB had also
heard rumors that a married couple
was planning to defect. It might not
have seemed a good time to try to
escape to the West under these circum-
However, the Kozlovs were keenly
aware that artists associated with a
tour from which there has been a defec-
tion tend to be tarred by association -
they are frequently kept back from the
next few tours abroad.
Accordingly, after the Bolshoi's last
American appearance in Los Angeles,
the Kozlovs decided it was now or
never. ┬░After a performance of Romeo
and Juliet, the Kozlovs left the
auditorium by a little-used and hence
unguarded back door, spent the night

sleeping in a van, and the next morning
went to a local police station to ask for
asylum. Several hours later, the
Kozlovs were under the protection of
the United States.
After their defection, the Kozlovs
spent the next three years in a hectic
schedule of touring and performances
with many different companies as
guest artists. They danced with such
prominent troupes as the Milwaukee
Ballet, the Jackson Ballet, and London
Festival Ballet, the Australian Ballet,
and the Caracas Ballet (which was
reincarnated as the Caracas New
World Ballet, seen last week at Power
Leonid and Valentina Kozlov staged
ballets for various companies; they
participated in arts festivals; and they
somehow found time to also become ar-
tistic directors of the Classic Ballet of
New Jersey, a state-supported com-
pany with aspirations of becoming
professional. For a time, it seemed that
if a stage existed, no matter how grand
or how humble, then the Kozlovs had
either just performed there or were due
in town next week.
Just like other Soviet ballet dancers,
upon defection, the Kozlovs had said
that they wanted artistic freedom and
that they wanted to expand their reper-
toire. These same sentiments have
been expressed by other recent defec-
tors - who then joined American Ballet
Theatre where they danced such "new"
and "modernistic" -ballets as Swan
Lake and Giselle. Thus, the Kozlovs'
statements were received with scep-
ticism by many.
Nevertheless, in March of this year,
the Kozlovs surprised nearly everyone
by joining the New York City Ballet.
They may actually stay and make a
success of it. Baryshnikov too had at-
tempted, for a year or so, to drink from
Balanchine's artistic spring; however,
he was already a principal dancer,,
molded in a style alien to the sharp
angularity of the NYCB.
The Kozlovs came to the United.
States as promising soloists but hardly
stars. Their extensive guest-artist ex-
perience exposed them to new and dif-
ferent styles of ballet when they were
not yet "set" in their approach. Indeed,
Valentina Kozlov has been getting good
reviews of her performances with the.
NYCB. It will be interesting to see the
effect of the Bolshoi's bravura
technical training combined with the
NYCB's emphasis on speed and

what is essentially a pick-up company
of eight friends and acquaintances.
Three of the Pennsylvania Ballet's best
young dancers, Deidre Duffin, Tamara
Hadley, and William De Gregory, will
appear- with the Kozlovs along with An-
ne Marie De Angelo, until recently one
of the stars of the Joffrey Ballet. (Un-
fortunately, Katherine Healey, who had
been expected to appear on the tour,
had to cancel.)
The Kozlovs' program for tomorrow
evening is an ambitious one. It will in-
clude a few standards: the Act II pas de
deux from Giselle (Valentina Kozlova
and Leonid Kozlov) and a diver-
tissement from Don Quixote.
The program will also include two
rarities, however: a beautiful pas de
deux that is a Bolshoi favorite, Grand
Pas Classique, and the pas de six from
