It seems crazy that a whole year has passed since my graduation. I’ve now commenced my second year as a professional and my first full season working for Astrakhan State Opera and Ballet Theatre, after gaining such a lot of performance experience initially with Royal Ballet of Moscow and St Petersburg Ballet.
I’ve already had lots of opportunity to perform with Astrakhan, including classics and productions choreographed specifically for the company by our Artistic Director, Konstantin Semyonovich Uralsky. I will also have the opportunity to tour with Astrakhan that will take us to the UK in the Autumn of 2017. I’m very excited to be performing in my home country and bringing Russian classical dance to regional venues across the UK.
Here are some pictures of my beautiful theatre in Astrakhan. This is the last post on my blog. If you’d like to follow my career as a professional dancer, I will be regularly updating my social media accounts:
