I wish some young dancers could dance like her.

The Ballets de Monte-Carlo and Jean-Christophe Maillot wish to express all their support to Sergeï Filin,
after the tragic event that happened to him last Thursday night.
We really want to communicate our sincere friendship and all our encouragement for his recovery.
With all our best wishes and our loyal friendship.

She was born in 1966 so I'm not sure if Nikiya remains in her rep. She was coached by none other than Semyonova (as was Tsiskaridze) so, yes, Stepanenko was a wonderful Nikiya.
A mere 46 years old, Fonteyn was dancing Bayadere at that age why shouldn't Stepanenko?
In my book the older the ballerina the better.

Here's to the mature ladies of the Bolshoi!
How strangely odd and wonderful to have a LADY in charge of the Bolshoi Ballet, finally, even if it is an interim situation, arising from a horrible event.

Then she danced at Stanislavasky for 2 years (1988–90).
Since 1990 she has been with the Bolshoi.
All Principals loved to dance with her so technically strong and professional she is.
Sergei trusts her completely and continues - between operations and treatment sessions - to perform some of his duties as the Director's, for example, he instructs her in view of the forthcoming recording and transmission of La Bayadere. It sounds reassuring.
Good luck to them both.

A random comment on sad state of arts: I've haven't had this many people interested in discussing ballet with me since Black Swan was released. Many friends/family members have forwarded links to news reports or brought it up in conversation.
Me too -- the number of friends who are not part of the dance community but yet have heard about this is impressive, and depressing -- all at once.

Summary/translation: Although the posts were dated Jan 11-12th, they appeared yesterday. This is the second time attacks have come on Facebook, the first being November, when a false page was created in Filin's name by someone attempting to make it look as if he was against the Bolshoi administration. When that page was deleted, a similar one trying to compromise his assistant was posted.

I found some more footage of the Bayadere rehearsal in a report from the Moscow correspondent/Phil Black of Sunriseon7 (Australia). Focus now is on moving forward. There will also need to be some work to repair damage to their reputation.
The clip includes some film of the press conference with Galina Stepanenko.

Bolshoi's Principal Ballet Dancer Interviewed Over Acid Attack on Artistic Director
I wonder if they will say anything at La Bayadere today that's being broadcast to all the cinemas....
