MOSCOW, November 20, Vasily Bogdanov. Silver medalist of the Olympic Games in team competitions, Alexander Enbert stated that the departure of choreographer Alexei Zheleznyakov from the coaching staff of Eteri Tutberidze became a logical rotation of specialists.
Earlier, a source reported that Zheleznyakov left the group on the initiative of Tutberidze.
“”I’m not immersed in the work of Tutberidze’s headquarters, I don’t know how much time Alexey devoted to athletes. I can only say that he is a great specialist in dance and plastic arts. He has a lot of experience, he knows how to work with figure skaters. It’s difficult to say whether it will have an effect this is on the coaching staff. I think he will find himself in a new team, and Tutberidze will begin to collaborate with another specialist, find new approaches. I would regard this story as a logical rotation of choreographers. Zheleznyakov worked with Tutberidze for a long time, gave his all. Perhaps he wanted something new,” Enbert said.
Zheleznyakov collaborated with Tutberidze throughout his entire career in Russia. He practiced dance exercises with all of her award-winning students, including Evgenia Medvedeva, Alina Zagitova, Anna Shcherbakova, Alexandra Trusova, Kamila Valieva.
