An inspiration

I've had a quick look through book but haven't read it because it is a Christmas present for my granddaughter, Vadim is one of her dancing heroes. The parts that I read though give an insight into his life as a dancer and is a fascinating glimpse into his training in Russia and beyond, a brilliant read for anyone interested in ballet.

A wonderful book

So pleased to have discovered this marvellous dancer. I was absolutely thrilled when I received this book for my birthday. Vadim’s endearing personality comes across well throughout the book sharing fond childhood memories, life experiences, and the years of discipline, hard-work and dedication that is required to be the very best. His love for ballet is clear and as everyone knows is displayed in all his wonderful performances. The book is a fascinating and entertaining read and highly recommended.

An excellent treat for your ballet lover friends

I received Vadim's book as a birthday gift, and it is the new addition to the reasons why Vadim is Vadream. Not only do I feel supported in appreciating his dancing, but I feel inspired to allow myself to dedicate more to my own crafts for the love of them.

(P.S. I am the recipient of the book ordered by Jared Deysel below, who had no clue how to review it 😂)

Vadim tells it how it is

By its very nature, the world of ballet can feel somewhat ethereal. But the way in which Vadim takes us, the reader, through his earlier life and shares his professional experiences opens a window on the tough reality of a dancing career.

This is also one of those autobiographies where you feel that you are getting to know the author as a real live human being – in this case a very modest and endearing one.

Highly recommended.

Good Christmas read!

This autobiography makes for very enjoyable reading about an interestingly varied life while, at the same time, providing a rare insight into just how much training and never-ending hard work goes into being a ballet dancer.

I was lucky to be given the book as a present and it seems to me to be something that any ballet fan or young dancer would love to have in their Christmas stocking.
