I’m in a Christmas-y mood, so here is Smirnova doing the Sugar Plum Fairy variation while still at Vaganova. The guy that says bravo at the end cracks me up for some reason.
Hey i'm Cristina. I'm seventeen and love ballet. Petrov Ballet School is my home. I love ballet because I have to work to get what I want. When I perfect a step do to determination and hard work I really feel like I have accomplished something. Ballet is the only "sport" (as some people would say) that has to be done with not only strength but grace. It has to look easy, even though anyone who dances knows that that is a bit of an understatement. I love how I feel completely free of the outside world while in class and on stage.
