Both lovely girls!  I hope Khiteeva gets fast tracked like some others have been!  She has the most beautiful arms.  What a wonderful Aurora she would be!

She reminds me a bit of Obratstova but with a few more centimeters of height. She has the softest arms and everything seems to be about her subtleties. As Paquita, all of her flourishes with her arms were controlled and not at all flung or overly broken or excessively dramatized. I feel this more old school style is vanishing rapidly. 

It is clear Khoreva is set up to be the next generation's star but I hope Khiteeva also rises quickly!
