Just twelve years after her first ballet class, Anastasia is making a splash in the dance world. Her “gorgeous line and polished technique” caught the attention of Los Angeles Times dance critic Lewis Segal, who also commented on her “serene partnership” with her husband Denis. Both now dance at the Mariinsky Theatre (Kirov Ballet), she as a First Soloist and he as a Principal.
