Last year in interviewed English National Ballet’s young First Soloist, Vadim Muntagirov for The Stage.  He talks about his tough Russian ballet training, and what it means to be dancing in the company in his first professional contract.

    What a superb interview with Vadim for “The Stage” which truly complimented the BBC4 Documentary last night. I am yet to see my first live Ballet but after last night I so want to, to see the dedication and true commitment. The youth of Vadim and to see the total fitness of him and the other members of The English National Ballet shows how they are as good as any sports person.
