On October 24th the young dancer Jacob Wysny who performed the role of little Mowgli in the ballet Jungle Book was invited to the talk-show Tijd voor Max. Another way of supporting young talents!

It is quite a unique experience for a 9-year-old soloist, to perform on a big stage, especially such a renowned one as Koninkljik Theater Carre, together with professional adult artists coming from a different country and not even speaking his language. Which is why Jacob was invited yesterday to the Dutch TV show “Tijd voor Max” to tell about his impressions of working together with the Moscow Classical Ballet Theatre.

Jacob Wysny was born in Amsterdam in 2009. He started classical ballet classes about one year ago at Balletstudio Marieke van der Heijden, based on the recommendation he received from his Kung Fu teacher who recognized him as a dancer. After one year at Marieke’s ballet studio, Jacob successfully passed the audition for the preparatory program of the National Ballet Academy. Besides dancing, Jacob’s hobbies include Kung Fu, swimming, skiing and ice-skating.

“I think this is very cool. It’s an honor to dance at the Dutch premiere!” says Jacob.
