His participation in 2009 at the International Ballet Competition in Moscow earned him an invitation to join the Boris Eifman Ballet Theater.

He currently combines his role as principal star with the direction of his own dance academy in St. Petersburg. In his own words, he created his study because "he felt that he was at a point where he had enough experience to share it with the younger generations”.
