In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya reflects on her enrollment in the Moscow Choreographic School, the ballet school, in 1934. In 1976 she traveled to America and visited the legendary Olga Spessivtzeva in a home for aged performers near New York. This was when she started studying ballet. She attended Yevgenia Ivanovna Dolinskaya's class. She also met Leonid Veniaminovich Yakobson, who took her to the Disarmament Conference.
