Milena’s dedication bore fruit swiftly. At the tender age of 7, she secured a spot in the Ballet Academy and, two years later, gained entry into the Kiev Choreographic Institute. Subsequently, she earned a scholarship to the prestigious Royal Ballet School and secured a contract with the Dutch National Ballet. Among her various performances, it was the enthralling “Spider” routine that garnered the most attention. Shared on YouTube, the dance has already amassed 13 million views. Capitalizing on its popularity, Milena has dedicated a section of her website to elaborate on the intricacies of the routine.
Expressing her lifelong fascination with spiders and their inherent grace, the young dancer reveals that she began emulating their movements, eventually incorporating them into her dance, as suggested by her mother. Despite it being her favorite, Milena acknowledges that the routine is challenging, demanding significant flexibility. Welcoming other dancers interested in replicating her routine, she advises caution, urging them not to exceed their physical limits
