For those who are interested, the Vaganova Grand Prix, held this year at the Mikhailovsky Theatre, featured some lovely dancing.
Olga Smirnova won first prize/the gold medal. She has one year left to graduation but is already more mature than many professionals. Her lyricism in the graduation performances this past June was breathtaking.
And the previously noted Kristina Shapran won the silver medal.
