One beautiful young balancer who seems able to stay on one pointe as long as she likes, but who always keeps the balance in keeping with her overall phrasing is ABT's Michele Wiles. During a recent lecture demonstration, her Rose Adagio impressed me, among other reasons, for her ability to change her gaze, so that she made eye contact anew with each successive suitor, avoiding that typical, awful, glazed-over look we usually see there. And she never looked the least bit unsteady!

Hhmm...on second thought, maybe it was her fouetees that got the ovation. I just remember thinking, "did I just see what I thought I saw? How could it be possible to do that?"

I recall Sonia Arova telling me that she had the record for the longest balance in DQ ......until she saw Paloma on that aired performance you are speaking of! Even Sonia could not believe it
