In 1979, the younger dancer arrived in Texas as a part of a cultural change, simplest to fall in love with The usa-and with an American lady. years later, thru a chain of occasions worth of essentially the most fun cloak-and-dagger fiction, he defected to america, the place he briefly turned into referred to as probably the most biggest ballet dancers on this planet. That is his tale, informed in his personal inimitable voice.
