My name is Nadja and I am from Minsk. My father pushed me to do ballet since before I can remember.
People think ballet is about having the perfect body, or having the genes of a czarina. I am being honest when I say there have been girls better than me at every step of my life. What separates me is I never wanted to quit. Doing ballet is what I love most. I do not think you can fake passion. The audience, whether in Moscow, Tokyo, or London, they know if you dance with every nerve in your body.
