Daria Pavlenko - Principal dancer

5 posts in this topic

The news had been out for a while, but now it finally seems official. Even the Mariinsky website has changed its roster (if only in the Russian section for the moment): Daria Pavlenko is now a principal dancer of the Mariinsky. Well, I guess if there was a Kirov ballerina who deserved to be honored with that title in recent years, it surely was Pavlenko.

Congratulations to this wonderful dancer! I discovered her last year during the Kirov tour in Paris and she really made a great impression on me (as did Bolshoi's Alexandrova this year), although I've only seen her in small parts. I hope seing her again very soon and this time in a great role!

A special ballerina who excells in classical AND neo-classical roles. She deserves the promotion indeed !

Many, many warm congratulations to Dasha !
