Maria Koshkareva is the main character of our new film. The video story was shot during the XIV International Ballet Competition in Moscow where Maria got the title of the I Prize Laureate in the junior group. The steps to victory are shown in this film: the first performance, rehearsals with Luidmila Kovaleva, Bolshoi Theatre backstage and, of course, the monologue within which Maria sincerely shares her thoughts of preparation for the contest.
