I'm Katya. I like films, musicals, writing...and dancing. Mostly dancing.

"I don’t agree with the extreme technique that the competitions develop these days. I think it turns dancers into robots, which is not pretty to watch. I am definitely a believer in artistry over tricks. The artistry will last longer, and you can develop it over decades. Tricks will come and go; one day you won’t be able to do them. After a while they’re kind of boring. With artistry, something new always happens. It’s creating a story and using your imagination on­stage. There is no imagination in tricks whatsoever."
- Sara Mearns, Principal Dancer with New York City Ballet (via danceindawnlight)
