Q&A

WHAT BALLET OR ROLE WOULD YOU LIKE TO DANCE BUT HAVEN'T YET?

It doesn't matter which role. Every role is important, so I just enjoy them all.

WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR PROUDEST MOMENT AS A DANCER? WHY?

When I got my first contract, because it meant that I was becoming a professional dancer.

WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE COSTUME? WHY?

Every costume from Yuri Possokhov’s ballets because they're amazing.
