One dancer whose feet are IMO actually distracting is Alina Cojocaru. I love everything about this dancer, but her wide, large feet do detract from her line.

A wonderful way of putting it, Hans.
Vishneva is thus yet another example of a dancer turning the tables on what could be considered a shortcoming and instead using it as an advantage.
Maybe this skill, which an awful lot of the best dancers must have used during their careers, would make a good thread of its own.

Papeetepatrick, I did not have yoga in my mind when I wrote that post. But now that you have brought yoga up, I feel I should give my opinion. Both yoga and Ballet tachnique are dicsiplines developed over millenniums (yoga) and centuries (ballet) on the same subject , human body. So there are bound to be similarities between them.
Carbro and other Moderators, forgive me for being offtopic from Vishneva again, I just needed to have a ground to make things fair because I feel some people have been unfair to me in this thread. Please go back to Vishneva.

Thing is, I went to the website and didn't see any announcement.

Don't know why the Mariinsky Theatre would underplay it, since they are credited in the proclamation.
It's surprisingly tiny. Right hand column, under "News."
The official Kremlin document is nine pages long, click page 3 to find Diana on the list of five People's Artists (she's in the middle of the five), where her association is given as Mariinsky (not Bolshoi). Clicking >> will get you to page 9, where you may enjoy Great Leader V. Putin's "signature" and the Great Seal.
The document was signed on January 31, so one wonders why it was not announced until today.
