First Run Features has just released this new dvd by Laurence Gentot.
*Edit - Topic should read 'Zakharova.'
It is a fantasy to call Zakharova and Lopatkina ballerinas.
Ballerina is a much over used term by journalists and marketers who feel they are making dancers stars by using the word in their reviews as well as creating pieces of puff to identify themselves arbiters of taste and knowledge.
The two dancers are principal dancers which is quite different to being a ballerina that alone a prima-ballerina.
They could be called 'stars', because they are promoted as such by their companies.
