I am from famous artistes’ family. My mother, Valentina Shishkova, danced tabor
dances. My father was a professional dancer too — Gypsy “Vengerka” was his
special pride. Our family had such masters of Gypsy songs as Tamara Moldavskaya
and Mikhay Shishkov. The most bright impressions of my childhood are connected
with traveling and concerts: I looked at the artistes on the stage and tried to
remember the most interesting moments. As it was traditional in our family I
started to sing and dance early — and one day I realized that it had become my
beloved profession. Since then I have been to Cyprus, Switzerland, Italy,
festival in Norway on tour. I worked with Tamara Moldavskaya, N. Vasilieva, A.
Bobrova, N. Shishkova, N. Lekareva. I like stage very much, because dances are
not so popular in restaurants.
