AR: You used to say that you had chosen ballet, because you felt, it would teach you living. What has ballet taught you?

M: It’s a hard question. Its impossible to learn living without making mistakes and realizing who you really are. Justice still remains a mysterious matter for me - whether it exists or is it a human will to believe in justice or live as if there is none of it. Why did I choose ballet? There are no words in it. Just be yourself. It is clear in ballet: whether you can or not.

AR: Do you have a life credo?

A: I don’t have a definite life credo, but I really enjoy when all people around are as happy as possible.
