This post is part of our monthlong series, #WhyIMove. Throughout May, we’ll be sharing stories of dancers from all over the globe. To see more of Stanislava’s life, follow @ruby.tear on Instagram.

“Every time I step onstage, I tell a story. I speak to the audience and I open up my soul. This is #WhyIMove,” says 17-year-old Moscow-based ballet dancer Stanislava Postnova (@ruby.tear). “It is hard work every day — a slow road toward technical perfection. Usually, I am at the Bolshoi Academy from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Sometimes I feel totally drained, but I am extremely proud to be studying here: a place full of centuries of Russian history. As a child, I used to choreograph for my friends, and in the future, I hope to make lifetime achievements as a ballerina and try choreography, too. I have so many creative ideas!”
