Interview by Svetlana Avakuum for "DANCE FOR YOU" magazine ​

"The fate of ballet dancers is often dependent and subject to strict regulations, but not in the case of Ksenia Ovsyanick. She breaks stereotypes by turning seeming failures and difficulties into steps forward on her path. Having not gone beyond the first round at the Lausanne Competition, she received the opportunity to study at the English National Ballet School and then joined the company while still studying; there she progressed from corps de ballet dancer to soloist. Having received an injury and taking this as a sign that something needed to change, she started thinking about moving to another theatre. The choice fell on the Staatsballett Berlin, which completely coincided with her expectations and possibilities. The period of forced inactivity during the pandemic provided an opportunity to become a mother and expand the boundaries of dance off stage. Ballet was chosen independently and consciously in her early childhood in Belarus and forever became a way of life."
