There's more to dance than dancing.
Here are about 20 such photos taken of Bolshoi dancers and students from 1947 to 2004, some famous photographers, mostly anon. dancers, except for Bessmertnova (in school, 1963) and Plisetskaya (1967).

Thanks for posting that link! I really like backstage and class photos.

There is also something about black and white which helps me as the viewer concentrate on the form.

me too. I also like the 1947 one with the young boys training at the barre. Their arms in second have definitely excelled from earlier years. You can see how hard the training was being amplified in those days. The Bolshoi is spectacular.
