Mia Arbatova - A Queen wthout a Palace

The Mia Arbatova Ballet Association is happy and proud of the publication of the Album-Book "A Queen without a Palace", written and edited by Rina Sharett.

"A Queen without a Palace", is an important book that focuses on Mia Arbatova's life, work and contribution to Israeli Dance, as a dancer, teacher, educator and creator. Mia won the title of Pioneer of Israeli Classical Ballet, thanks to her struggles to create a place for Classical Ballet in the World of Israeli Dance.

Her unique character shines in the background of the New Hebrew cultural growth in the days before the creation of the State of Israel, during the establishment of the State of Israel and for many decades after.
