Children”Ilya Averbukh. - Now many more children have come to the casting than last year. Now the project has reached the international level, they are interested in it in other countries: we are sent video for casting from America, Japan, Germany. This year we also changed the rules a little: girls will compete with girls, boys - with boys, dancers - with dancers. Each of the mentors will recruit three teams in each of the disciplines.

- I am very glad to be next to Lesha again and immediately surrounded by a large number of talented children, - says Alla. - Children are what I have always strived for. Lyosha has two of them, but I don't have them. And then suddenly there are a lot of them! And they don't need to be taught anything: they know how to stand on skates, and they skate better than me. Finally, my dream has come true - many children and no responsibility for them!
