Kadir Okurer is a 19 year old young male ballet dancer, who is confident both on the stage and in life. Although he is just embarking on his career, his accomplishments indicate what he is capable of achieving in the future. Lots of people in Turkey, whether they entertain an interest in ballet or not, already know his name. Some even say that he is resisting gravity. Kadir Okurer carries a huge responsibility despite his young age. Working as an artist under contract for the State Opera and Ballet, Okurer is at the same time a student at Hacettepe University State Conservatoire. Okurer is successfully representing our country abroad. He has won numerous awards and he is invited to dance with many companies abroad. His passion for ballet and his self-discipline as a priority in life brought Okurer a huge success. He describes his success in the important contest that experts call “ballet Olympics” and the offer from the most important company of the world in a very modest fashion. While new doors are opening for him all around the world, he continues to work non-stop so as not to let his trainers, family and country down. He has a very different life style than his peers; there are times when the only thing he can fit into his schedule besides ballet is some sleep.
