Maybe it’s because I have been learning ballet all my life that I think this. I love watching Diana Vishneva she is so powerful in the dance, and creative. She brings me to tears every time. I like Uliana Lopatkina as well, to me they are both the last real classical ballet dancers. Now it is so much about tricks instead of the actual artistic quality of the ballet. I am flexible thankfully, but sometimes I think doing the 180 extensions looks vulgar and more gymnastic than beautiful, and ballet is supposed to be about beauty.
