MAKHACHKALA, DAGESTAN: Sakura, 22, was probably destined to dance.
As a baby, she once woke up to music on a TV commercial, shaked her body, and went right back to sleep when it ended.
She may have inherited the love of dancing from her mom, who performed ethnic Dagestani and Indian dances.
Sakura said she practices experimental dance when alone at home and will be moving to St Pete to develop further her skills.
While many girls her age in Dagestan are contemplating marriage, Sakura is dreaming of visiting Japan …. Marriage is not in her near-term plans. She says she still feels like she is 16.
