Alexei Zheleznyakov: “We must look for problems in ourselves, not in coaches. Trusova doesn’t know how to listen to wise people and hasn’t been attending choreography class.”
Choreographer of the group Eteri Tutberidze Alexei Zheleznyakov spoke about the transfer of Alexandra Trusova to coach Svetlana Sokolovskaya.
Alexei Zheleznyakov: I have a favorite phrase that my father likes to say: “So they lived: they put on lipstick, but didn’t wash their ass.” What does this mean? We must look for problems in ourselves, not in coaches and not in teams. Sasha was with Plushenko, then she returned to Eteri, now she is moving to Sokolovskaya.
Well what can I say… Good luck. I wish her only good luck! But until she understands that adults need to think, understand what they say about her and why they tell her this, she will not achieve anything.
Trusova will go to Sokolovskaya – so what? The name “Russian Rocket” will remain in history. Let her go. Each person chooses for himself and makes his own fortune.
Sasha, unfortunately, does not know how to listen to wise people. I can give an example: choreography – Sasha has not been attending jazz class for a year now. Although everyone writes comments on the Internet: “Sasha, you need to dance, you need plastic and choreography!” No, Sasha does not draw conclusions. Same about classical dance.
What to say if the child does not understand that there are professional people who have gone through fire and water. Know it all. Why can’t you just listen? Why do you need to constantly change the coaching staff?
I only wish her good luck! Let everything in Trusova’s life work out, but such searches, as a rule, do not end in anything good. Let her go to Sokolovskay, to Vasilevsky, and to anyone. Until you put your mind back in place, nothing will work out.
