Many know Ekaterina Leonova from the RTL dance show “Let’s Dance”, where she is supposed to teach more or less prominent people to dance. She first had to learn to be patient with her students, she says. After all, not everyone has as much discipline as the 35-year-old. In the office of her Munich employer, she talks carefree about her three careers. Only at the end, when the conversation turns to the war in Ukraine, does the atmosphere become depressed.
Ekaterina Leonova was a world-class dancer, made a career in television, and works as a business consultant. A conversation about a childhood full of discipline, the disadvantages of being famous and life as a Russian in Germany.
