Anonymous asked - "Which ballet is your shine like sveta swanprincess gifset from? I know it says swanprincess but I couldn't recognize the scene if its from Swan Lake."

La Scala’s Swan Lake - it’s taken from the faux happy ending, when Odette is free of Rothbart and she and his Robertoness live happily ever after. (Until she finds out that he doesn’t put the toilet seat down, anyway.)

Anonymous asked - "(for the cojocaru tank) I'm 5'11"! but you have so many amazing shirts I'm sure I can pick another one!!"

Oh, you’ll be fine if you’re a US 0 - 4, boo! Thought you were 7” or something! You can refer to our size guide for shirt length measurements.

Hillsborough: It is the 25th anniversary of the Hillsborough tragedy, where 96 fans lost their lives and almost 800 others were wounded at a football match in Liverpool - or, in the foreign tongue of the North American, soccer. The cause was largely police mishandling of the large crowd, but the blame was pinned on the fans due to institutional coverups and a national media smear campaign. The truth only came to light after a long and hard-fought quest for justice.
It is not dance-related, but it resonates with us - and not just because we like the football (22 fit men running up and down a field, what’s not to like?) - but because of the terribleness of lives being taken in the innocuous act of supporting that which they loved. And it resonates with us because we come from a place of an unsacred Constitution where basic pillars of democracy, like objectivity of the press, freedom of information & the separation of powers are cautious - and sometimes costly - luxuries.

Just to correct this, the hillsborough disaster was not in Liverpool, it was at the hillsborough stadium in Sheffield, but it was Liverpool fans who died, in the Liverpool fc vs Nottingham Forest FA semi final match.This hits close to home as I am from Liverpool. Rest in peace and justice for the 96 <3
and if you’re from the UK, remember DO NOT BUY THE SUN.

In supporting Liverpool, wow we missed a crucial verb there. What she said. *points above*

lasylphidedubolchoi:

remember how somebody asked me a couple of weeks ago, if there’s a Vaganova diet? i said no, but actually i new the answer back then (no, i didn’t google later, i really did know about it). it’s actually a pretty popular and famous diet here in Russia. it’s not called “A Vaganova Diet” or smth,…

I read that Lopatkina often just eats kefir and grapes or something

Some quotes from Lopatkina on food & eating:

I’ve never had the usual problems of dieting as a dancer. Ever since that time I’ve been able to eat enormous amounts - even of typical Russian food - and stay thin. 

- How Do I Look, The Independent (2001)

 

"I get up rather late, between 9am and 10am. I am an owl, as we say in Russia. But rehearsals don’t start until 11. Since I gave birth to Masha, she acts as my alarm clock. I feed her first. Normally I’m very short of time in the morning, so I won’t eat breakfast, just some grapefruit juice or a glass of tea. If I’m not rushing off I’ll have oat or buckwheat porridge. 

After break I’ll have one more rehearsal or sometimes I’ll help teach the younger dancers. Lunch will often become dinner. My favourite place to eat is Staraya Derevnya, a little cafe just round the corner from the Kirov. If I want something more expensive I’ll go to Count Surovov, just off Nevsky Prospekt. Although I am Russian, I spent the first 10 years of my life in the Ukraine, and no one can cook borscht like the Ukrainians. 

My diet is not that strict. Ballet should not be like a sport, and the spiritual condition of a ballerina is as important as her physique. I never try to dance just with my body, but with my soul and my heart. 

Whether I’m performing or not, I never go to bed before 1am or 2am. Before I go to bed I’ll have Russian kefir, or yoghurt, with a biscuit. If I’ve been performing, I’m so exhausted I don’t want to eat, and I’ll go to sleep as soon as I lie down.”

- A Day In The Life, The Telegraph (2005)
