Eva Sergeenkova – The Graduate of the Bolshoi Ballet Academy

Meet the face of our new documentary! Eva Sergeenkova is a graduate of the Bolshoi Ballet Academy. We spent with Eva one of the most important periods of her student life – the graduation year. We were lucky to capture her preparations to the state exams, her work under the guidance of the professor Marina Leonova, her performance with the Bolshoi Ballet troupe and graduation concerts. This film is more than a portrait of a young ballerina, it is an opportunity to show the inner life of one of the best Ballet Academies in the world. 

As though being stepped down from the Renaissance paintings Eva is a ballerina that represents a rare combination of endless lines and high technics, touching beauty and clear mind, natural tenderness and strong personality. Tomorrow Eva starts her new season with the Bolshoi Ballet. We wish her a bright and beautiful creative journey!
