What are the necessary and sufficient conditions for Bolshoi Style? Head, fingers, knees and toes, please. And for men as well as women.

BIG and BOLD. covering space well. 'heroic' use of space, perhaps... rich & eloquent character dance. that's for starters... ;)

Just to remind us that there's more to The Bolshoi than the recent excess of "news" stories. :)

To me, their arms in 'high 5th' or 'en haut' seemed more square and a little to the side than round and long. And fingers, not as open.

Bold and big jumps--both men and women. Ferocious turners.

If I had to sum up Bolshoi style in one word, it would be "generous".

Gene Schiavone, the amazing photographer of ballet has a wonderful series from the Bolshoi in DC... These photos are stunning:


And while you are at his site... take some time to look at the Denis and Anastasia Matvienko of the Kirov...

But all the galleries he has there are incredible and show the wonder of ballet in photography. Treat yourself... and have a look.
