From 1987 to 1990, he was a soloist with Donetsk Ballet Company in the Ukraine. Plotnikov held principal dancer positions at Ballet Mississippi and Tulsa Ballet Theatre between 1990 and 1993, before joining Boston Ballet as a principal dancer in 1993, where he performed until 2006.

"The elegant Ruth Mitchell an icon of Dance in Atlanta is going to be greatly missed in the arts community. She was an amazing lady with a thirst for knowledge and beauty in everything that touched her life. We were so fortunate to have her teach for us here at the Centre for Dance Education when it first opened in 1996. Her knowledge and generosity of spirit made each student feel special and she had many wonderful dancers go on to professional careers. We thank her for all that she contributed during her lifetime and all the lives she touched." - Dean of the Centre for Dance Education, Sharon Story

It is with a heavy heart and great respect that we share Ms. Ruth Mitchell, Atlanta dance pioneer, has passed away. She trained under Miss Dorothy Alexander and danced with Atlanta Civic Ballet (now Atlanta Ballet). Ruth Mitchell's career included tours with Ruth Page, Jose Limon and Les Ballets Americans as well as the Broadway shows of "Bloomer Girl" and "Annie Get Your Gun." Ms. Ruth shared her love of dance with many and we are all better for it. Rest In Peace, Ms. Ruth.
