Ballet in Film: Katia & Volodia

The incredible husband and wife duo of Ekaterina Maximova and Vladimir Vasiliev are two of the very best-loved Russian ballet dancers. Katia & Volodia reveals clips of their early training, rehearsals as pros, performance snippets and clips of them coaching younger dancers.

Partnered together as small children in ballet school, the leading pair were wed in 1961. Maximova passed away last year at the age of 70 and was survived by her husband. In March of this year, a gala was given in honor of Vasiliev for his 70th birthday.
