Oksana Skorik Swan Lake rehearsal video

Recommended Posts

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.

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).
