Anastasia Yurievna Volochkova (born January 20, 1976 (1976-01-20), Leningrad) - Russian ballerina, dancer and social activist, People's Artist of Karachay-Cherkessia (2006) and People's Artist of North Ossetia-Alania (2007). Laureate of the Serge Lifar International Competition, winner of the Benois Dance Prize (2002). Honored Artist of the Russian Federation (2002).

She began her ballet career at the Mariinsky Theater in 1994, then worked at the Bolshoi Theater from 1998 to 2003. After 2003, she performed with solo projects, mainly of a pop character. In addition to her dance career, she also tries herself as an actress, model and singer.


Born on January 20, 1976 in the family of Yuri Fedorovich Volochkov (born July 31, 1947), the champion of the Soviet Union in men's doubles (with Ivan Minkevich) in table tennis in 1983, a track and field coach in a sports school, and Tamara Vladimirovna Antonova (born. December 3, 1951), tour guide in St. Petersburg. According to Volochkova herself, she dreamed of becoming a ballerina from the age of five, since her mother took her to the Nutcracker ballet at the Mariinsky Theater.

She studied at the Academy of Russian Ballet. A. Ya. Vaganova, graduated from the class of Natalia Dudinskaya. In 1994, while still a student of II, the pre-graduation course, she began to perform solo parts on the stage of the Mariinsky Theater. After graduation, she was immediately accepted to the position of a soloist. Already in the first years of her work she performed the main parts in such ballets as Giselle, Corsair, Swan Lake, Raymonda and Firebird.

In 1998, she received an invitation from Vladimir Vasilyev to the Bolshoi Theater to perform the main part The Swan Princesses in his new production of Swan Lake. She also performed the parts of Nikiya (La Bayadere), Raymonda, Fairy Lilac (The Sleeping Beauty) in the editions of Yuri Grigorovich. Along with work in the troupe of the Bolshoi Theater, he begins a solo career, performing with his own concert numbers and in troupes of other theaters.

After a tour in the UK in early 2000, Anastasia received an engagement in London in the English National Ballet, where choreographer Derek Dean composed the Fairy Carabos part for her in her own production of Sleeping Beauty. In March 2000, she returned to Moscow and signed a contract for the next season for the main parties in the Bolshoi Theater.

After the unexpected dismissal of Vladimir Vasiliev (from September 1, Anatoly Iksanov was appointed director of the theater), Volochkova began a series of conflicts with the new administration. At the same time, she turned into a popular character in secular chronicles, tabloids, constantly appeared in various television shows and became the “face” of the jewelry house Chopard . In 2002, on the stage of the Bolshoi Theater, the ballerina was declared the laureate of the Benois Dance Prize, which caused public outrage.

In 2003, the administration refused to sign another annual contract with her, limiting herself to four months. In response, Volochkova appealed to the courts and raised a debate in the media about the legality of such a decision. In September 2003, she was officially dismissed from the troupe, which was widely covered in the press. The formal reason was that Volochkova did not meet the requirements of physical fitness and it was impossible to choose a partner (Mariinsky Theater Prime Minister Yevgeny Ivanchenko, the only ballerina partner who was injured, was unable to participate in Swan Lake).

She is the only leading soloist who is in such physical shape! The future of the Bolshoi will obviously be made up by such as Zakharova, Alexandrova, Lunkin. And I can’t build prospects, depending on whether Nastya Volochkova is losing weight or not.

Volochkova herself connects the dismissal from the theater with the personal revenge of the billionaire and deputy Suleiman Kerimov, with whom she broke up shortly before the dismissal. The ballerina explained the “excess weight problem” by the fact that Iksanov forced the male part of the troupe to sign a letter in which they refused to dance with Volochkova (Nikolai Tsiskaridze refused to sign). Thus, according to the ballerina, a situation was artificially created in which it became impossible for her to work.

In November of that year, during her recital in the Kremlin, Anastasia said:

I believe that justice will prevail and I can still dance for you on the famous stage of the Bolshoi Theater. And your presence here with all of us is not only the support and justification of my work. This is my great victory over those people, over those forces that are trying to deprive me of my work and destroy me like a ballerina.

Although in the end the court took the side of the plaintiff Volochkova, as a result of the lawsuit, she left the troupe.

Since 2005, he has been working in his own projects, starring in films, television series and commercials. He is one of the main characters of the television cartoon show "Cartoon of personality."

Twice participated in the television project "Ice Age": in 2007, paired with figure skater Anton Sikharulidze, in 2009 (season III of the show) - paired with Maxim Marinin. In December 2009, she was invited to Alla Pugacheva’s project “Christmas Meetings” as a singing ballerina, composer Igor Nikolaev wrote the song “Ballerina” specially for her.

In 2009, her autobiography History of a Russian Ballerina was published. June 17, 2010 Volochkova defended her thesis on the topic of creative schools in the regions of Russia and received an MBA from the Higher School of Economics. In 2011, she opened the Anastasia Volochkova Children's Creative Center in Moscow.

Anastasia Volochkova - Ballet "Swan Lake"

In 1998, Volochkova received an invitation from the artistic director of the Bolshoi Theater, Vladimir Vasilyev, to play the main role in the author's production of the ballet Swan Lake, which she already knew. At the same time, the development of the solo career of the artist begins.

Already in 2000, Anastasia received the prestigious Golden Lion Award for participating in the Austrian competition as the best European ballerina. Soon followed by an invitation to London, where the ballerina will play the main part in the play "Sleeping Beauty."

Then Volochkova left the Bolshoi Theater for a year, due to disagreements with the new leadership of the theater. But in 2001 he returned to take part in the production of Yuri Grigorovich. This period of the artist’s career has already been marked by great success.

According to theatrical impresario, people go "to Volochkova", and indeed, performances with the participation of a ballerina collect full halls. In 2002, the artist received a high state award - by presidential decree, the ballerina was awarded the title of "Honored Artist of the Russian Federation." A protracted conflict with the theater leadership dates back to this time.

Dismissal from the Bolshoi Theater

Intrigues against the ballerina resulted in a high-profile trial, picked up by the media: the leadership of the Bolshoi Theater refused to sign a contract with Volochkova because of professional unsuitability. These claims boiled down to the fact that the height and weight of the artist (172 cm and 55 kg) supposedly exceed the permissible norms for the profession of a ballerina.

Volochkova recalls a sense of injustice towards herself that did not leave her throughout the whole process, as well as unexpected support from the Western press: New York Times journalists asked for permission to officially measure the physical parameters of the ballerina and refute the rumors persisting in the Russian press. According to them, Anastasia could not grow by 11 cm since her last appearance in America.

Despite the fact that the court declared the dismissal of the artist illegal and decided to take Volochkova back, she, of course, could no longer remain at the Bolshoi Theater after everything that had happened. In the same year, at a solo performance in the Kremlin Palace, Anastasia thanked all those present for their support, which helped her to continue the work of her life and did not allow envious people to take away her right to work.

Show Business

After the scandal at the Bolshoi Theater, where Volochkova continues to be formally listed as an artist, she acts for some time as a prima ballerina in the Krasnodar Ballet Theater. In 2004, the artist made her film debut. She starred in the serial detective series "Place in the Sun", based on the novel by writer Polina Dashkova.

In the same year, "Black Swan" was released - another film with her participation, which won the main prize at the Independent Film Festival in New York. Also, Anastasia played herself in the popular Russian telenovela "Do not be born beautiful."

In 2009, the Nerve show premiered, which was a huge success in London, as well as in the State Kremlin Palace in Moscow. In the same year, Volochkova's autobiography, The History of the Russian Ballerina, was published.

Anastasia Volochkova - “Ballerina”

After the book appeared on the shelves on the Web, a "photo-toad" appeared with a cover image on which another name appeared - "I and the ball." Despite the black PR, the ballerina's literary work was a success with readers who noted the author’s easy syllable and an interesting selection of topics.

And in December 2009, Anastasia takes part in Alla Pugacheva’s New Year’s show, where she unexpectedly makes a debut for fans as a singer, performing the specially composed song “Ballerina”, authored by composer Igor Nikolaev.

Career start

At the graduation party, Anastasia Volochkova perfectly and without one mistake showed the solo part in the legendary production of Swan Lake. The performance took place in 1994. By the way, the dancer graduated from the school with the highest marks. After that, she was officially accepted into the troupe of the cultural institution, in which she worked for several years.

For four years, Volochkova got a variety of parties, including the leading ones. As the ballerina herself later told, a career at the Mariinsky Theater was not easy for her. The young dancer had to learn what vileness and weaving intrigue in the theatrical sphere are. The labor conflict has reached such proportions that Volochokova was finally decided by the parties and was completely left without any work.

In 1998, the ballerina, with the filing of Vladimir Vasiliev, moved to Moscow. There she showed herself in the popular and important production of Swan Lake, which was staged at the Bolshoi Theater in the capital. The work of the dancer really liked the creative group, so there she remained to work further.

Unofficial information indicates that the native of Peter got into the Bolshoi Theater thanks to the connections of businessman Anzori Aksentiev. Allegedly, he was the patron of Volochkova. The dancer herself never confirmed the fact of meeting and communicating with the entrepreneur.

In 2000, Volochkova went to work in Austria, where she was awarded the Golden Lion honorary prize. She was named one of the most talented and sought-after ballerinas in Europe. Here, the blonde also had her own patron. It's about the millionaire Anthony Kerman. For the sake of Volochkova, he even abandoned his family, but the romance did not last long.

In 2003, the ballerina was drawn into a scandal. The thing is that the leadership of the Bolshoi Theater did not sign an employment contract with it. Allegedly, the dancer's requirements went against the whole troupe. In addition, Volochkova was declared unsuitable. Allegedly, her weight for growth of 171 cm was about 55 kilograms, and her shoulders are very wide.

Volochkova tried to file complaints with the courts and challenge the above decision, but she did not win a single lawsuit. After that, she decided to engage in the development of an individual career. In 2004, the dancer found a job as part of Grigorovich's ballet in the Kuban.

Further career

In 2004, Volochkova tried herself in the cinema sphere. She performed one of the roles in a small Russian film "Place in the Sun." A year later, the blonde was waiting for another project "Black Prince".

In 2009, Volochkova decided to write an autobiography, in which she told how she achieved success. Two years later, she opened her own creative center.

Along with professional activities, Volchokova decided to be active in social networks. Every now and then she published candid photos, not embarrassed by her body. The ballerina herself is very proud of herself. According to her, to look like her, you need to work daily.

In 2013, a flurry of criticism fell upon Volochkova after her photos of an intimate nature with singer Nikolai Baskov appeared on the Internet. Allegedly, the couple together enjoyed sunny days in one of the best hotels in the Maldives. It was there that Volochkova was often used to spending her holidays. Also often blonde visits Greece and Turkey.

“Sobchak always envied me”

Anastasia believes that she fell into the cage of people, due to which the presenter arranges her own PR. In addition, she claims that Ksenia herself wanted to become a ballerina, but she didn’t, so she can’t accept that Volochkova is a ballerina who danced Swan Lake in the Mariinsky Theater when her whole family was in the front row of the theater’s stall.

Filming in Volochkova’s house lasted six and a half hours, the hostess conducted a tour for everyone even in the bedrooms. But after that, Sobchak, taking advantage of the pause into which Anastasia changed her clothes and straightened her makeup, went back to the bedroom and began to rummage through the bedside tables and cupboards. The intimate object that she found, Ksenia even showed Gleb the Drunk, with whom she allegedly consulted as a professional what was possible and what could not be shown on the air. Later, the ballerina said that Sobchak pretended to have found an intimate toy in Volochkova’s bedroom, which we really didn’t have.
