Creativity From early childhood, the parents sent the girl to a ballet school at the Moscow State Academy of Choreography. Natalia Vladimirovna Lavrukhina became Anna's first teacher. Thanks to the efforts of the mentor, the girl received a good professional base. Having successfully passed the exams at the ballet school, the girl entered the Moscow State Academy of Arts, where she studied until 2011. After graduating from the university, the creative biography of Anna Isaeva developed successfully. Yesterday's graduate immediately becomes an artist of the "Kremlin Ballet", and then "Russian Ballet named after Gordeev." Anna gets solo and minor roles in the classical repertoire. Together with creative teams, she tours across Russia and abroad. In 2015, she decided to leave the stage and founded her own dance and choreographic studio. Isaeva became interested in teaching. The artist's students are professional dancers who want to improve their own skills, as well as everyone who wants to master the technique of ballet, jazz-funk, stretch or fitness.

Anna Isaeva got to audition for the film about the Bolshoi Theater, on which Valery Todorovsky began working in 2014, thanks to the efforts of the assistant director for the selection of actors - Tatyana Ivanovna Talkova. Among the thousands of photos, the assistant to the stage director selected a picture of a Moscow dancer. At the casting, Valery Petrovich began to look closely at the non-professional actress.


Anna Isaeva got the role of the talented ballerina Karina Kournikova, a wealthy girl in the capital who is systematically moving towards her goal. The girl is not afraid of work, for the sake of a dream the dancer is ready to sacrifice a lot, including her personal life. At first, the girl did not manage to match the role, although, according to Anna, Karina's character is close to her in spirit.

The auditions lasted for 9 months, until Isaeva gained precision in her performance. The girl got into the image. The work was also helped by the fact that the director spent a lot of time preparing ballet dancers for dramatic scenes. The preliminary stage before each take lasted 2-3 hours.
