I don't believe this interview with Masha has been linked to before:

Maria Kochetkova - Magic Doesn't Just Happen (she talks about her career and training over the years)


It's not often that we get to hear a dancer or choreographer talk for almost 15 minutes straight, so it's a really interesting interview.

Good to see some of the Gala footage - we can always count on amateur video from Russia. ;)

Nice photo of Masha in Venice...

She's such a hipster but I really like her dancing (I always pull for the pint-sized ballerinas). Posted Image

Wow, this was amazing. She is so versatile; every time I watch her I get a little more impressed. (Her feet in the first piece! Wow! You really notice a woman's good feet when she's wearing slippers vs pointe shoes.)

Thanks for posting this link!

Maria Kochetkova of San Francisco Ballet to Debut with ABT in Swan Lake on Friday Evening, June 21! @balletrusse @sfballet @ABTBallet
Read:
Sadly, the lovely Alina Cojocaru has withdrawn from her 'Swan Lake' performance, due to injury... *but* she will be replaced by San Francisco Ballet's pride and joy, Maria Kochetkova. 'Masha' Kochetkova trained at the Bolshoi School and danced with The Royal Ballet, English National Ballet, and as a guest artist with Bolshoi Ballet and Mikhailovsky Theater before joining San Francisco Ballet as a Principal Dancer. Her list of guest appearances now includes Galas all over the globe. Ms. Kochetkova makes her first ABT appearance as Odette/Odile opposite Principal Dancer Herman Cornejo in *his* ABT debut as Prince Siegfried.
Anyone want to hop a plane to NYC?

Thanks Lion. I would very much like SFB to change the editing of their videos. These principal videos might appear slick from an editing standpoint, but they purposefully obscure the dancing. Would it really kill them to show more than a few steps and a pose? I hate to mention it, but the NYCB is doing a much better job of putting out videos on any and all subjects, and we can at least see 15 seconds in a row from a performance.

 

Masha does look sharp though.  ;)
