Abstract

"The Talk of Pittsfield" piece on Andrei Bossov, arguably the most talented male dancer ever to perform with the acclaimed Kirov Ballet Company in the former Soviet Union, whose Bossov Ballet Theatre is now affiliated with the Maine Central Institute (MCI) in Pittsfield. Bossov's private classes and summer school draw talented and eminently serious students from all over the world. MCI is shedding its traditional jock image in favor of a new reputation as a school with one of the best arts curriculums in the Northeast, a school that now produces talented musicians, actors, and dancers as well as gifted science and math graduates. Bossov was brought to MCI by Colonel Michael Wyly (USMC-Retired), who discovered ballet between tours of duty in Vietnam and now owns a farm in Pittsfield. Col. Wyly's daughter, Summer, is one of Bossov's private students.
