“It was very interesting to work with Kostornaia, she’s a high-level athlete and able to show any artistic image.” Elena Radionova choreographed a gala program for Alena Kostornaia
Bronze medalist of the 2015 World Championships Elena Radionova choreographed a gala program for European champion Alena Kostornaia.
Elena Radionova: It was very interesting for me to work with Alena, because she is a high-level athlete. Alena is able to show any artistic image, because she feels the music well, she has plastic, with great potential in the second mark, which is generally one of her strengths. But we tried to do something new. Despite the fact that she can show any images, I wanted to choose a new direction for her, to show her as a more adult, mature athlete.
We will definitely continue working on this program. Remembering myself during my skating career, I can say that I also worked with many choreographers, this is very useful, because I took something from each. I’m sure Alena will also benefit from our cooperation.
Tamara Moskvina: “World Championships is World Championships. I watch such competitions not only because of the Russian figure skaters.”
