“I am a full-time student in the School of Contemporary Dancers(SCD), Winnipeg, Canada. Originally I am from Russia and I came to Canada to join the Professional Program at SCD.
This is a four-year program leading towards BA in Dance. We train every day Monday to Friday from 9 30 a.m. to around 5 p.m. After school, I practice contortion, hand balancing, partnering and aerial hoop (approximately 12 hours per week).
In September I am stepping into my last year in the Program. I am very excited to graduate! I'm looking into joining a contemporary circus company, that would look for diverse performers.
In my future career, I want to perform as a contortionist and dancer with minor aerial skills.”
