“When Semyonova taught me to teach at the theatre, to create sequences, she explained each movement and what it was for. She told me that you cannot do this movement at the barre without doing this movement in the middle and in the leaps. All the sequences in the lesson should be related.”

– Nikolai Tsiskaridze on preparing his first graduation exam at Vaganova Ballet Academy.
