Biography details

Aleksei Stepanovich Dementiev , circus director in Russia

Born 1961-03-13 in Latvia dead 2001-12-07 .

Born March 13, 1961 in Riga, Aleksei Stepanovich Dementiev (1961-2001) didn’t belong to a circus family: His father Stepan Dementiev was the manager of a department store in the city.

He got married to Taisiya Kornilova in 1979 and Alksei began his apprenticeship on the job—as a groom first. Then Anatoly and Nina put together an equestrian quadrille in which they gave the young couple a part, along with Mikhail and Yuriy Chevrotkin.

On April 6, 1981, Taisiya gave birth to the couple’s first child, Andrei Dementiev-Kornilov, and in November 13, 1993, to Anastasia Dementiev-Kornilov.

In 2000, the Kornilov family experienced a tragedy - Aleksei Dementiev died in a car accident. The circus show artists went on tour to Belgium, and Alexei fell asleep at the wheel, drove to the oncoming lane and died from a head-on collision.


Total: 2 children

  1. Andrei Dementiev-Kornilov. Born: 1981-04-06.
  2. Anastasia Dementiev-Kornilov. Born: 1993-11-13.
