I also remember Ann Ditchburn. Those who mentioned her were right. And I agree with those who named (in no particular order) Altynai, Semenyaka, Lezhnina, Zakharova, Vishneva, Suzanne Farrell, Allegra Kent, Helene Alexopoulos, Guillem, Fracci, Kirstin Simone, Lis Jeppesen, Donna Woods (glad someone remembered her), Ferri, Bussell, Marianna Tcherkassky, and my personal favorites, Gelsey Kirkland and Alina Cojocaru.
But, unless I missed them, no one's mentioned the following: Birgit Keil (Stuttgart); Cynthia Harvey (ABT), Amanda McKerrow (ABT), Charlene Gehm (Joffrey), Patricia Barker (PNB), Janie Parker (Houston), Lesley Collier (Royal), Nadezhda Pavlova (Bolshoi), Yoko Morishita (Matsuyama), and Janet Eilber (I know she's Graham, but always looked like a ballerina).
And for a sneak preview: Sarah Lane (ABT)

Julie Kent is extremely beautiful as well, I remember reading somewhere a reference to her "Boticellian-like beauty"..
Of NYCB, Darci Kistler.

I find many ballerinas stunning so it's hard to choose and why bother... we are blessed to have so many beauties with such talent and dedication to thrill us on stage.
The one who is dancing at the moment is the most beautiful!

I've decided upon Julie Kent, Stella Abrera, Janie Taylor, and Irina Dvorovenko. (In no particular order)
Zakharova,Saidakova,Semionova,Abbagnato(only her face!!!),Osipova,Cojocaru,Aurelie Dupont....

A lot of bridge building would have to have taken place first as Sizova and Nureyev hated one another. Forced by the Kirov management to share a flat in Leningrad, she moved her mother in and he moved his siter in. The resuts were volatile.

Thanks, Mashinka. Is this story best told in the Kavanagh bio or elsewhere? That episode would interest me.
I should add that I do find that among film actors, there seen to have always been more 'pretty women' than men, but that with stage actors 'prettiness' is also not as important, just as in ballet. However, I've looked at BallerinaGallery at some of the new favourites posted this morning, and most of this is too difficult to determine, unless you see the dancers both onstage and off, as dancerboy had described in the 'Most Beautiful Male Dancer' thread. I've only seen Nureyev, Baryshnikov and many of the NYCB dancers offstage (that I know of), and looking at these photos, I see that I find Aurelie Dupont and Sylvie Guillem exquisite in some photos, but don't have any idea how much it has to do with the onstage projection and makeup. I know that most of the NYCB ballerinas are much more beautiful onstage than off, because they give more of what they are there and also some have faces that are plain until painted. For the most part, it is only models that always have that drop-dead look at all times. Sander0, I admit some of this is somewhat superficial, but then many of the best things in life are...
