Principal Dancer, Dutch National Ballet
Dance Open: 2017
Although Anna came to the world of choreography comparatively late, one day she decided to become a famous ballet dancer, which she did.
Her parents brought an adolescent girl to the dance school in order to improve her posture and it happened that they gave her a start in life. Anna passed the exams to the Krasnoyarsk Ballet College easily and upon the graduation in 2003 she joined the Krasnoyarsk Ballet, where she quickly became the principal dancer and the favourite of the local audience. Nevertheless, she did not stop there.
Anna persistently tried herself in various Russian ballet companies in Novosibirsk, Kazan, Mikhailovsky Theatre of St. Petersburg and the Nemirovich-Danchenko Moscow Music Theatre where she really fostered her talent.
In 2015 Anna decided to move on once again and it was when she fulfilled the dream of many ballet dancers of our time — she became the principal dancer with the Dutch National Ballet. In the season of 2016/2017 she is dancing Tatiana in Onegin by J. Cranko together with legendary Anna Tsygankova and Igone de Jongh who is called “a Muse of Hans van Manen”.
