Yale University Press

In this chapter, Maya Plisetskaya recalls how her father decided to send her to Moscow to study ballet. She was too late for the end of the school year. In the second year, a new teacher, Elizaveta Pavlovna Gerdt, took Yevgenia Ivanovna Dolinskaya's class. For six years, Maya studied with Pavlovna, the daughter of Pavel Andreyevich Gerdt, soloist of His Imperial Majesty. In the summer of 1935, Maya's father was summoned to Moscow. The following year, the Stalin Constitution, written by Nikolai Bukharin, was announced. On April 30, 1937, Maya's father was arrested.
