anonymous asked:

What do you think about Andrei Merkuriev?

I think people can look upon him and get inspired by his story: he studied in Ufa and made it to Mikhailovsky, Mariinsky and then finally Bolshoi! I like Andrei a lot, though he’s not my favorite dancer. it’s hard to believe he’s grown professionally so much. he’s a great artist.

P.S.: I think, he’s a wonderful Basilio, especially with Ekaterina Krysanova (they had their debuts in DQ together, and they both said in an interview that they consider each other perfect partners in this ballet).
