Meet Vadim Muntagirov

Meet Vadim Muntagirov was born in Chelyabinsk, Russia, 21 years ago.  His parents were both professional dancers, so he and his sister naturally began lessons very early in life.  At the age of 9, he went away to Perm to begin taking his ballet seriously, eventually spending the last 3 years of his training at the Royal Ballet School in London.  English National Ballet’s Artistic Director, Wayne Eagling, and Maina Gielgud attended his class’s end of year show, recognised his abilities, and afterwards  offered him a contract, promising him that he’d be dancing Albrecht the following Christmas… which he did indeed.
