MOSCOW: Russia’s legendary Bolshoi ballet was embroiled in a new scandal Wednesday after an American ballerina accused the theatre of demanding $10,000 to allow her to dance solos. Texan Joy Womack, 19, a young dancer hired last year after graduating from Bolshoi’s dancing school, said in an interview with the Izvestia daily that she dreamt of solo roles only to be told she would have to pay a bribe in order to perform.  ‘I found out that I have to pay $10,000 for variations, to perform in one production, to dance a part,’ she told the newspaper.–AFP
