Irina Dvorovenko and Maxim Beloserkovsky

“Life as a dancer: when we fall, we fall hard…we become adults at ten years old.” In this episode, follow a quarter century of the discipline, romance and artistry of the beautiful and sexy American Ballet principals Irina Dvorovenko and Maxim Beloserkovsky, perhaps ballet’s greatest couple ever. The beautiful pair, who met as students at Kiev’s School of Dance in 1984 on the eve of their superstardom, enjoyed individual acclaim leading up to their reunion on stage in performances The New York Times has called ‘infused with verve.’ Discover the graceful magnetism and life-long struggle of two artists who have embraced and mastered both individually and together the discipline and fluidity of their art. In a rare moment of relaxation with the pair, join The Artist Toolbox host John Jacobsen in attacking the subject of the ups and downs of life as a professional dancer, the hours and challenges in creating a piece of art that depends on a guise of effortless beauty and grace. Says Irina, in summing up the experience of the artist, the dancer: “Your wisdom, whatever you collect through the years, is amazing. You feel wonderful.”
