Evgeniy danced in the children’s dance ensemble Tyulpanchik (Small Tulip). He says that Kalmyk dances differ from Mongolian ones by their fast movements, energy and temper, which is probably an influence coming from the dances of the peoples from the Caucasus. Evgeniy thinks that the Kalmyk dances help Kalmyks release their (abundant) energy. His favorite dances are ishkimdyk and tovshur. Evgeniy reminisces that when he danced on the stage he would fall into such a state of mind in which he felt adrenalin and oblivion.
