I am a 22 year old ballerina; I have been dancing for 20 years. I am a dance major in college and it is my goal to be professional or bust. This is my sideblog to post pictures and videos of myself, reblog pictures and videos of dance and ballet, post inspirational quotes, etc. Feel free to ask me questions and submit things!

“The tendency of modern classical ballet to change the measure of degree of the pose, the approach toward what is artistic gymnastics, it’s my opinion that the Vaganova system saves classical ballet from entering into sports, if you understand her system correctly. What is “correctly”? I can explain: No matter how high you lift the leg, each position must be a harmonious composition that incorporates the diagonals of the legs, arms, and the pose of the head. So you have to look very carefully at how high to lift the leg. The requirements of beauty must be harmoniously combined together; if you pay specific attention to the beauty of line, then classical ballet remains ballet even under the changes in the degrees of a position. The line must be logical.”
