I was born and grew up in Moscow, Russia. At the age of ten I have been accepted to the prestigious Academy of Bolshoi Theater in Moscow where I studied for 8 years. I started my career as a corp de ballet member at Moscow Classical Ballet (Moscow, Russia) where I danced for four years and traveled extensively around the world.
In the United States I danced with Ballet Internationale (Indianapolis, IN), then joined Cincinnati Ballet (Cincinnati, OH) as a soloist and finished my career at Milwaukee Ballet (Milwaukee, WI) as a Leading Dancer.
During seventeen years of my career as a professional ballet dancer I performed as a guest artist in Italy, France, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland, China, Japan, Mexico, Canada, Russian Federation and the United States. I have worked with many famous choreographers and teachers such as Freddie Franklin, Stanton Welch, Michael Pink, Trey McIntyre, Andre Prokovsky, Irina Kolpakova, Vladilen Semiyonov and Val Canniparolli.
Of my many roles the most memorable are from the ballets: The Nutcracker, Don Quixote, Copellia, Paquita, La Fille Mal Garde, Giselle, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Three Musketeers.
