I turned 30 today. Couldn’t have asked for more so far in life. On to a few years more.

A little clip from our last show of "Falls The Shadow" last week with @worksandprocess at the @guggenheim! Choreography by @cerrudoalejandro, dancers are @ana_chu, @cassiepearlt, Brett Conway and yours truly (@daniil).
Home Sweet Home. After an eventful week, 4 shows at the Guggenheim with "Falls The Shadow," and a 3-day trip to Berlin for the announcement I'm happy to be finally home and to arrange gifts at home. Flowers from @dior and a candle from @samujistudio... with my own favorite epic chair from @artekglobal!
I am extremely grateful for the ten fantastic years I spent calling ABT "home." As a new chapter begins, I am thankful to Kevin McKenzie, who not only has been very supportive, but who is also allowing me to return to the wonderful New York audience in the future. Having grown up in Germany, I am looking forward to returning with everything that ABT has taught me and to joining Staatballett Berlin under the directorship of Sasha Waltz and Johannes Öhman starting in the 2018/2019 season.
