Honoured Artist of Ukraine, prima ballerina of the National Opera of Ukraine
“Our profession is very emotional. Out of nothing, something gorgeous is not born! People of ballet, of course, give a lot of emotions to their work, they are demanding of themselves, so sometimes this is reflected in life, ”the prima ballerina admitted to journalists. According to her, ballet dancers feel the imprint of their profession in everyday life, in relaxation, on vacation, and in family life. But all this pales in comparison to the pleasure of dancing. Natalia Matsak is a laureate of numerous international competitions and a participant in various festivals. Graduated from the Kiev State Choreographic School.
