Virgil Avenue Chandler Boulevard

From Russia with Love

Denis Kochkin

I’m from Moscow, Russia. I’ve been here for two years and four months. I’m a dancer, so I usually go to North Hollywood for classes, auditions, and workshops, or to Hollywood, where I practice. I go to the International Dance Academy there.

I’ve learned real L.A. life on my commute. Not through a car window, just real life stories. People struggling to wake up in the morning, drama, love. Humanity.

I play games or try to learn Spanish. I’ll do math or even write notes.
