What does the title of "ballerina" mean at Kirov?
Posted 16 July 2003 - 11:27 AM
I recently viewed the tape "The Leningrad Legend". This is a tape hosted by Natalia Makarova, depicting a return visit to St Petersburg years after her defection.
There is a section where she mentions that a certain female dancer had "beautiful feet, beautiful face... etc", and Makarova had always wondered why that dancer had never been given the title of "ballerina". What does it mean in Kirov hierarchy? A soloist, or a principal dancer or what? anyone knows?
Also I read at the preface of "Basic Principles of Classical Ballet" (Vaganova's book) that Vaganova got the title of "ballerina" at a certain time in her career.
thanks for clarification!!!!!
