Tatiana,nurse,Odette. That was fun and clever! I enjoyed seeing pics of some of the Stuttgart dancers from the past. I used to see this company fairly often in LA in the late 60s/70s. Loved them and had quite a crush on Richard Cragun and Egon Madsen.

Gremin. And here I was shooting for Lt. Belaye, but I guess he's not a choice.

Tatiana! With a bit of Odette and Odile. What a fun little quiz and clever design.

This test was created by Evan McKie, a principal dancer with The Stuttgart Ballet. He trained at the National Ballet School in Toronto and the Kirov Academy in Washington, D.C. He has also written for The Winger and Dance Magazine and is a friend of mine from back when he was a highly dedicated, passionate 14 year old ballet student and studied a summer with Nadia Veselova, with whom my daughter studied. He continues to be highly dedicated and passionate, a consummate dancer.

Here is the home page of his in-construction website:

Evan McKie

I think when I took this test right after he devised it last year, I was Tatiana!

I had difficulty with the range of options and felt that I was contradicting myself from one question to the next. The result, I am ashamed to admit -- : the Joker from Jeu de Cartes. :smilie_mondieu:

The test may have confused my contradictions for deceit.

I certainly hope they are wrong. Or maybe I don't. :wink:

I find Tatiana's husband especially sympathic; they have a beautiful pas de deux which shows a committment and makes Tatiana's mature choice obvious. However in 2002 I saw Nathen Coppen (no, not Kobborg) as Onegin at RB and I would have been hard pressed to resist him. Jeez!!

Like Mel I turned out to be Gremin. My friends thought it should be the Joker in Card Game.

I hope they meant mischievious as played by Christopher Gable and not somewhat spitefully as played by Anthony Dowell.

Another Katharina, with a half order of the Nurse.

I usually don't like sites with lots of moving graphics, but kudos to Evan McKie and the Jealous Kid On/Off Graphics people who worked on the site.

Thank you, innopac, for finding this :)
