Natalia Osipova, born in 1986, tells us about her life, including her childhood in Russia, when she was initially destined for a career as a gymnast, and her admission to the Moscow State Academy of Choreography, which trains future dancers for the Bolshoi Ballet. From her acclaimed performances with the American Ballet Theatre and at La Scala in Milan to her becoming a principal ballerina with the Royal Ballet in London in 2013, this charismatic, spontaneous, and charming ballerina shows her formidable determination, which contrasts with her incredibly fine, graceful, delicate physique: a true force of nature!
