  1. Eleonora has just confirmed she will be joining the Bolshoi.
  2. It has just been confirmed that Sevenard has been hired by the Bolshoi. She was offered a position at the Mariinsky as well but she turned it down. Bolshoi really seems to be attracting the Vaganova gems.
  3. According to the instagram page she has now started treatment in Germany. Meanwhile, fundraising continues to cover for her treatment costs. Former Mariinsky dancer Keenan Kampa has set up a gofundme account for Karina. I think it's good for anyone who wants to help but feels a bit uncomfortable about making direct transfers to Russia. https://www.gofundme.com/help-karina-soldatova
  4. There is an instagram page created for her at https://www.instagram.com/help_karina_soldatova and it has just been updated with the following message: DEAR FRIENDS! There are no words enough to express gratitude for the prompt reaction and attention to Karina's situation! Your reaction is a true, sincere support, which gives strength and hope.

    Agreed. What Skorik lacks is consistency, and personally I think she is terribly unmusical. And yes, her first solo performances were a complete disgrace.
