Extreme Natalia Osipova/Наталья Осипова, from day1 the passion, work ethic, & flexibility shone!
A dancer of extremes, her work ethic, talent, passion, even flexibility (a 180 degree split is nothing to her... she does 270) are beyond the norm. Following Natalia Osipova from her very first ballet classes to adulthood, this video shows how strong these qualities were in her from the very start. Even today she has not slacked off. Where others may settle for good, or aim for simple greatness, Natalia has other plans. She is driven to be the best ballet dancer she can possibly be. She is one of the most self-disciplined, hardest working, laser beam focused, minutia-calculating, "do it twelve more times" dancers in the world today. And, the result is mind blowing... Music: "So Many Secrets," "Dramatic Orchestrations," and "Triumphant" by Gavin Luke Born in Moscow, Osipova began formal ballet training at the age of nine. From 1996 to 2004, she studied at the Moscow State Academy of Choreography (The Bolshoi Ballet Academy). From 1995 to 2004 she trained at the Moscow State Academy of Choreography and on graduating entered the corps of the Bolshoi Ballet, where she was promoted to principal in 2010. In 2011 she left the Bolshoi to join the Mikhailovsky Ballet as a principal.Osipova has appeared as a guest artist with companies around the world. In March 2012 she became a principal of American Ballet Theatre, where she created the title role in Alexei Ratmansky’s The Firebird. Her awards include Golden Masks for her performances in In the Upper Room (2008) and La Sylphide (2009), Critics’ Circle National Dance Awards (Best Female Dancer, 2007, 2010 and 2014), Positano Dance Awards (Best Female Dancer, 2008 and 2011) and a Benois de la Danse Award (Best Female Dancer, 2008).If you enjoyed this, please consider subscribing to my Youtube channel and/or "like" my "Natalia Osipova" playlist as well.
