"Evgenia Obraztsova (formerly of the Mariinsky Ballet) preened herself, admiring her arms and wrists, smiling delightedly. Her partner, Vladislav Lantratov, ran around her, catching her as she swooned."

I noticed her when I watched the Tricentenary Gala dancing the Phryne part in La Nuit de Walpurgis. Her dancing was so authorative, very composed and imo out-shined the others dancers that at that time I mistakenly assumed that she’s already pro at POB and I wondered why did she dance in this gala.

Swan Queen’s sadness.
So, I think I’ll quit ED-rehab, since it’s just too painful and hard and just makes me feel awful. I’m going to talk to my doctor tomorrow, and it’ll be really terrifying since last week she had me involuntarily committed to a mental hospital. wish me luck..
