Hey there, it's Leggie!

Hey there!

So, my nickname is 'Legwarmer', I generally am on DDN. When I found this site, I was thrilled - this is a place at which people really discuss performances and dancers, not only a fandom.

If anybody's interested, I have danced a couple of years in my childhood but had to stop at the age of 12. First, I wanted to audition for a ballet school at Hamburg, but my parents wouldn't let me. In the end, it was the right decision - I don't really have the ballet body, as it seems. I re-started dancing one and a half years ago, now I am 17. I have huge fun, and I adore ballet to bits.

As to the performances I have seen:

Bolshoi Ballet: The Nutcracker. 30th December 2003.

Marie: Nina Kaptsova

Nutcracker: Yan Godovsky

Drosselmeier: Viktor Alekhin

Ballet Classique de Paris: Swan Lake. December 2005.

Bolshoi Ballet: Giselle. 9th April 2006

Giselle: Svetlana Zakharova

Albrecht: Ruslan Skvortsov

Myrthe: Nataliya Vyskubenko

The Royal Ballet: The Sleeping Beauty. 1st November 2006.

Aurora: Lauren Cuthbertson

Florimund: Federico Bonelli

Carabosse: Genesia Rosato

Lilac Fairy: Alexandra Ansanelli


I have a couple of ballet DVDs, too:

Swan Lake, Fonteyn and Nurejev with Vienna's Corps de Ballet

Romeo and Juliet, Fonteyn and Nurejev with The Royal Ballet

Giselle, N. Bessmertnova, M. Lavrovski, G. Kozlova with Bolshoi Ballet

Giselle, Svetlana Zakharova and Roberto Bolle with Teatro alla Scala's Corps de Ballet

Great Dancers of our Time, Vladimir Malakhov and Diana Vishneva/Nadja Saidakova, Lucia Lacarra with Cyril Pierre, Kiyako Kimura with Christoph Böhm

Ballet Concert 06 with Svetlana Zakharova and Roberto Bolle (Odile PDD), Alessandra Ferri and Massimo Murru (Le Chauve-souris PDD), Kader Belarbi and Clairemarie Osta (Appartement: PDD The Kitchen), Nicolas Le Riche and Clairemarie Osta (Clivago: Clivago's advances), Aurélie Dupont and Mathieu Ganio (La Sylphide: James seeks the Sylph), Nicolas Le Riche and Karl Paquette (Ivan the Terrible: The battle with the invaders)


What else to write? Is anybody interested in my favourite books? - or should I just leave it at this?
