In the new issue of the Imports project, Amur’s goalie Patrick Bartosak will try his hand as a ballet dancer under the guidance of choreographer Sofia Gaidukova, the host of the program Grand Ballet on the Culture Russian TV channel.
But Russia is not only ballet; it is also excellent hockey, so in the second part of the issue, the goalie will stop “putting on a ballet” and return to more familiar practices.
