This is only a short video, but I found it on Youtube and thought other forum members may enjoy watching it too. It is Oksana Skorik and her partner Timur Askerov in Swan Lake rehearsal. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!

Very promising! The distorted alignment (a la Somova) at 1:34 is disappointing though.

Just out of interest I took a second look at the frame @ 1:34 and thought it absolutely beautiful. Wing like working leg creates a metaphor for a bird ready to take to the skies. In this particular case square hips would render the pose less dynamic, even stale.

Saw her live once and couldn't believe that particular performance...(to the point of embarrasment, if IMO... :speechless-smiley-003: )

Not at all impressed with Skorik, who massacred CHOPINIANA at the Kennedy Center last night, sorry to report. This is sad because I admired her in the documentary of her struggles at the Perm Academy of Ballet (ca-2006/07) and was hoping for much more. Not sure why she has become so brittle and lacking in poetic feeling or musicality (almost a face of anger throughout a Romantic poem of a ballet).

I told you so, Natasha..! What I saw was not an off night. It was just an unprepared dancer thrown out to the stage way before her time...
