Jury Davydovich Gorshkov, the national actor of Republic Moldova, the director of National choreographic college
has more recently celebrated 70 years. But even at so honourable age he does not cease to solve daily almost all problems of an educational institution. That excites the known choreographer who has brought up not one hundred of dancers, Irina Bogdanova has tried to find out.
Has tried to find out the journalist of "Panorama".
Our conversation passes in parallel with acquaintance with curricula of adjacent educational institutions, viewing wishing to arrive on a choreography. The national actor behaves, as always, easy, with a smile.
- How many pupils this year you type? Whence they?
- As usually - 25. And all studies 250. There is a hostel, now in a good condition, after repair. We always accepted visitors.
- Whether there are at you unresolved problems?
- The greatest is a premise. We rent three halls at Opera and ballet theatre as the do not suffice us. At us five audiences for 12 general educational subjects, five small ballet halls, two musical offices. And on norm 10 ballet halls from 100 to 200 square metres are necessary. There is a plan of our new building near musical college, - as a part of small town of creative educational institutions. I have a dream to see this plan carried out.
One more problem are leaders. At us nobody prepares pianists - leaders of ballet classes. It is very specific kind of the activity, not everyone can master. Unfortunately, elderly and skilled already leave, and it is few replacement.
- Whether all graduates are claimed?
- All and for 100 percent. Really: actors of ensemble «Æîê», «Ôëóåðàø», the Opera and ballet theatre troupe is all our graduates. Here, just this year from our 39 wards of branch of national dance 26 are invited in «Æîê», 6 became students of Academy of arts. The others - at Opera and ballet theatre. Just the theatre director of an opera and ballet of the Romanian city of Craiova offered vacant places at the theatre.
- Whether many aspire to become teachers in college?
- We invite young forces. Too our graduates who have received higher education now work: D.Antonjuk, A.Filippchuk, O.Untile, N.Kretsu, J.Cheban, A.Litvinov. In Academy, just on our speciality, there are faculties «dance Pedagogics», "Choreography", and also an adjacent direction "Art management".
- I know, that many graduates are perfectly arranged outside of our republic. They do honour to choreographic school of Moldova. But here on a place professional collectives lose good experts …
- Actors everywhere are necessary. Especially with good preparation. Also they need "early" pension after 20 years of the experience with the minimum rate. And in the West the salary of the actor allows not to worry at least about it. In Vienna now work as S.Sosonovsky, and Tkachenko, D.Taran, M.Furnika, I.Grebencha. In Berlin: D.Tamazlykaru, A.Orlenko, U.Topor. Z.Varvarich. In Paris: A.Nanu, I.Burduzha, D.Lazukava, S.Gerchiu, S.Burlaku. A.Bystritsky teaches in the Parisian academy. In America 30 persons work.
In Russia in Mariinsk theatre work G.Schneider, J.Baltazhi. And ours Christina and Alexey Terentevyh often invite to tours in theatres of Europe as leading actors. In Odessa: M.Tsurkan, V.Statnyj; Kiev: K.Balaban. In Moscow, in Imperial Russian ballet - L.Shevelev.
- You remember all?!
- Our children are my life!
- From conversations with parents I know, that at you children with the weakened health were trained also. Whether there were problems of what the big loading?
- For all these years I do not remember, that someone seriously was ill. Anyhow can be? Any case, for example, with Botkin's illness. But children come the different. It is a lot of from incomplete families. And with bad health. For example, with a scoliosis, with the weakened nervous system. And leave, on the contrary, got stronger and blossoming. And as there can be differently, after all a movement under music - also emotional pleasure! For these years have seen so much. And with bad behaviour we struggle the strengthened personal control. And firm discipline. Negative energy it is melted into the creative. And from the most malicious slovens fine temperamental dancers turn out. Then there come parents and thank. And children with pleasure come to communicate, doors are always open.
- Probably, such result of work is possible only with an excellent command of teachers?
- Our teachers also are immensely betrayed to favourite business. Therefore, for example, the question on the daily control, checks at us is not actual. I trust the collective. On the contrary, I can tell: do not come tomorrow for work. Also I will be assured, that tomorrow all will be on places. We work on result. And you it see on a scene in the end of each academic year. By the way, I invite all who loves a dance and youth holiday, to our accounting concert!
