I am truly very jealous for anyone reading this that can understand Russian. I want to know what this woman is saying SO BAD.
So I had to make this post because I was watching a bunch of random youtubes (story of my injured life), and I came across this set of 4. It's a documentary from Perm Ballet School (anyone else remember when that other Perm video came out called "Beautiful Tragedy"? Yeah, I do. Check it out if you haven't). Anyways for those who don't know, Perm is one of Russia's best schools, at least from what I've heard, and this teacher is awesome. First off, she always wears the same purple sweater with colorful embellishments. Secondly she makes girls cry, smile, and giggle all in the same class. Thirdly she also parties!! Fourthly, and maybe most importantly, she is friends with MAYA PLISETSKAYA. The most amazing female dancer ever - I don't care what anyone else thinks.
|in case you didn't believe me, here is the sweater|
I highly recommend watching these videos (why else would I post about them?), however I will give you a brief summary of each so that you can rate their importance and decide which you prefer watching if you have lack of time.
Part 1: They show a little bit of barre and then center. She makes two girls sit out.
Part 2: Center continues and then they switch to examination day. And then one of the best parts is MAYA PLISETSKAYA. If you are also a Plisetskaya fan, fast forward to 13:20 to see her gorgeous face along with five pounds of eyeliner (but hey she looks hip!)
So if you're not familiar with ballet and have watched some of these, maybe you've learned that ballerinas aren't as "soft" as you think.... I wish my dad would watch this.
I did promise a fashion post, and don't worry it's coming up. I'm just spending extra time/research on it to make it awesome. Ohhh yeah.
Also, a little tidbit here for ya: TODAY IN HISTORY, Puccini's Madame Butterfly premiered at La Scala Opera House in Milan. Oh and it's also Michael Jordan's birthday.
Ta ta for now everyone!
