Thanks!

 

I think Smirnova is a wonderful dancer - beautiful line and musicality.  

 

I also really love Kondratieva, and so I enjoy that every time there's a feature on Smirnova, there's an interview with her coach!

I've been watching the most recent video clip of Olga Smirnova dancing Diamonds and of the many things that I like very much, one is very pleasant to see. 
 
It's how healthy she looks. She has a very proper weight condition for one thing.
 
I look back on earlier video clips where I really admired the linear beauty of her motion. She was also thinner and I began to think that it was a large reason for the overall, beautiful look of her dance.
 
Now I see that she can still achieve a wonderfully linear dance quality and also have a very healthy and beautiful looking weight condition.
 
Based on video clips only, I think that she is progressing wonderfully and is just beginning a truly remarkable career. I greatly look forward to being able to see her perform live this summer in NYC to confirm what I've enjoyed so much on video.

Also a Prodigy definitely, and a Genius quite possibly.
