“Hard worker, hard worker with character. A huge talent – she can do almost everything. Working with her is a thrill.” Choreographer Nikita Mikhailov did two new programs for Alexandra Trusova after she left Tutberidze’s group
Choreographer Nikita Mikhailov shared his impressions of working with the silver medalist of the 2022 Olympics Alexandra Trusova.
Mikhailov became the choreographer of the skater’s new programs this season. After leaving the group of Eteri Tutberidze, Trusova changed her programs choreographed by Gleikhengauz.
Nikita Mikhailov: Hard worker, hard worker with character. A huge talent – she can do almost everything. Working with her is a thrill.
In the process, she always discusses every movement. She has one feature, she immediately said: “Nikita, you know, I can’t improvise, I need to know exactly where, what, when. Please, we have to put everything.
I said, “Got you,” haha. This is how the process went for us: we put something somewhere, and she says: “Wait, you didn’t tell me what to do here.”
This is probably her distinguishing feature – her thorough, per-second understanding of where she should look, where she should wave her hand.

Can’t wait for her new programs. Have been watching Sasha since her very first appearance at Grand Prix 2017, can’t get enough of her. This seems to be a crucial period of her life… dreams crushed, a Phoenix just about to fly up from her ashes. This time, on her own terms.
