papeetepatrick and Anne - thank you, you are very kind! I have to say I would hate to be a critic on a daily - so hard to say what you think is important in 400 words or whatever, and so difficult to find space for 'on the one hand...but on the other...'!

Dronina's technique: I meant that she does all the things that seem to be expected these days, especially from younger dancers - high extensions, splits jetes etc - which would fit in well in many companies but have not yet become the norm among the senior casts in Copenhagen. So to me it's as if she was speaking a different language. But she does what she does very nicely, though not in Osipova's class as a virtuoso.
