Osipenko was admitted to the state ballet school in Leningrad immediately before the German invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941. Together with her mother, she was evacuated to Perm in the Ural mountains with the Kirov Ballet company and the school’s students. In Perm she began studying ballet and endured the rigors of wartime existence. She returned to Leningrad when the German blockade of the city was broken in 1944.
