"So much of our career in this business has been judged by critics, who comment on how well or badly you perform. But, for children, they just dance and enjoy the moment without any distraction. I think that is what we should dance for."

Rzhevska, who is director of the Ukrainian National Children's Ballet which she founded in 1982, has been taken more than 30 child dancers to perform in over 50 Chinese cities over the past five years.

During their monthlong 2014 tour, the troupe will perform two classical ballet pieces - Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and The Little Mermaid - as well as giving workshops and master classes for audiences, especially young Chinese ballet students.
