Vadim book review

Chatting with the King of the Princes

From the lure of a dormer room with an electric plug to continue training in a Russia emerging from the Iron Curtain, to the glitz of a post-show London reception where he learns that a racehorse bearing his “Vadream” nickname has just won, Muntagirov invites us -without artifice - to walk in his shoes. The book’s informal layout with its QR codes and snapshots feels like a private, one-on-one chat, but its cataloguing of the workings of the ballet world and life of an artist at the top of his game, clamped in virtual leg-irons though Covid lockdown, are as meticulous as his stage work. Fans, including 96 000 Instagram followers, to whom Muntagirov is simply “Vadim” will be happy to learn that the man who strides onto world stages like the god Apollo, off-stage remains the kind, unspoiled human-being that they love to love.

I've had a quick look through book but haven't read it because it is a Christmas present for my granddaughter, Vadim is one of her dancing heroes. The parts that I read though give an insight into his life as a dancer and is a fascinating glimpse into his training in Russia and beyond, a brilliant read for anyone interested in ballet.

A wonderful book

So pleased to have discovered this marvellous dancer. I was absolutely thrilled when I received this book for my birthday. Vadim’s endearing personality comes across well throughout the book sharing fond childhood memories, life experiences, and the years of discipline, hard-work and dedication that is required to be the very best. His love for ballet is clear and as everyone knows is displayed in all his wonderful performances. The book is a fascinating and entertaining read and highly recommended.

An excellent treat for your ballet lover friends

I received Vadim's book as a birthday gift, and it is the new addition to the reasons why Vadim is Vadream. Not only do I feel supported in appreciating his dancing, but I feel inspired to allow myself to dedicate more to my own crafts for the love of them.

(P.S. I am the recipient of the book ordered by Jared Deysel below, who had no clue how to review it 😂)
