Don't know. I never saw Youskevitch dance.
. When pointing to a specific variation/role, I sometimes refer to the name of the dancer who originated it-(if I happen to know it)...you know, as a matter of tribute.
Thanks for the answer, major...!

That's my most vivid memory of Farrell's DD, too.
Most durable memory is the diagonal of double ronds de jambe sautés that she did in the minor period of the waltz. She also had a lot of sweep and a highly flexible torso, which she exercised to good effect in exiting.
Essentially yes, but with two differences. Dewdrop piques into attitude, and the man in T&V does arabesque. Also, most of the men I've seen in T&V (both ABT and NYCB) alternate the arms in the arabesques. Dewdrop (in attitude) doesn't.
Isn't this the same combination of steps used for the opening of Youskevitch second variation in T&V...?

Nice, all of it. Thanks.
