THE TOP RIGHT MAKES ME CRY

JUST THE TOP RIGHT?!

I agree, all of the gifs of her are amazing but that top right one…the way her head and arms move and she just pulls into fifth. When a ballerina can make something very special happen when she simply moves between steps, it’s awe-inspiring. This is one of the reasons why Olesya is one of my favorites. <3

agreed. and the bottom left- so simple but ahhhhhhh

That bottom right tho.
So smooth
So clean

I could watch that top right gif for a lifetime

I really wish they’d promote her (and Kolegova… and Osmolkina though I don’t think that will ever happen) already.

Lopatkina only has a few years left and she doesn’t dance everything; Vishneva travels a lot and has many other projects; Makhalina and Pavlenko are listed as principals but don’t really get cast much (if at all).

We’re left with Kondaurova, Tereshkina and Somova. When it comes to a promotion, I prefer it goes to Novikova and Kolegova over Skorik. I don’t hate Skorik, but she’s not my fave either. Sigh.

YES Kolegova, Novikova, Osmolkina have to be promoted (also Ivanova but that won’t happen, and you’re right, probably not Osmolkina). Hopefully soon I mean especially Kolegova and Novikova are dancing so much!!!
