December, 2010 – Victoria Ballet Academy students in collaboration with Fox Searchlight promote the “Black Swan” movie, starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis.

Anastasia Loskutov as a Black Swan

Victoria Ballet Academy was contacted by Fox Searchlight last month with a peculiar proposal. Our students were asked to help Fox Searchlight to promote the upcoming movie “Black Swan”, a psychological thriller about ballet life starring Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis. Six graduating students of Victoria Ballet Academy were invited to Fox Searchlight studio to have their make-up done by professional make-up artists, dress up as black swans and travel on the TTC, attracting attention and inviting people to see the movie. The girls had much fun getting into the black swan character, riding the TTC in their tutu’s and dancing on Bloor subway station. The public was pleasantly surprised and people were curiously asking about the movie and our school. It was truly a great adventure, one of many at Victoria Ballet Academy.
