When she was young, her parents sent her to an arts gymnasium. The decision to dance was not a realization at the age of 6, so there was no particular story. She says she was just a very active child, whose energy was directed in the right direction.
She believes that ” Dancing is what you burn with. And if you don’t burn, then you don’t need to deal with them. Do not stress during training, but try to learn a lot and enjoy yourself “. Her life’s Motto is (as she says), ‘Movement is Life’.
