vaganova girls and their attitude will be the death of me

That’s Sofia Ivanova-Skoblikova - she graduated in 2013 and has already danced soloist roles! she’s very string and has gorgeous arabesque/attitude as you can see… as well as lovely feet Idk why I’m ranting I just like her a lot especially since many people didn’t think she’d get into Mariinsky because she’s a bit shorter and more muscular than the usual Vaganova/Mariinsky ballerina.

So I’ve been seeing a lot of “you don’t come and tell me ballet is not a sport” thing on my dashboard. Well, this is me coming to all of you who say that and answering you: as far as my beliefs go, ballet is not a sport. And the fact that even ballet dancers believe that ballet should be on the freaking olympics makes me truly sad. Is that why we see so many videos where 9 year old girls do a thoushand pirouettes without any emotion on their faces? Is that why almost everyone these days has crazy extensions, but if you look closely, their dancing doesn’t touch anyone in any way? Is that why, for God’s sake, that some blogs on Tumblr who are blind enough to call themselves dance blogs show, countless times, endless pictures of contortionism and acrobacy? Well maybe those are sports, but ballet is not. And by saying this I don’t mean to underestimate other sports. I believe that anyone who loves something enough to sacrifice anything — social lives, bodies, minds, relationships — for the sake of it deserves everyone’s full respect. But differntly from most of the olympic sports, ballet is to be felt, not evaluated and given numbers. Ballet is something to cry upon, to love upon, to dream upon, to feel the hairs on the back of your neck prickling with joy and sadness and fear and love. Not to cheer upon. Not to collect trophies. Not to compete upon. If you disagree, please look at the picture above. What do you first see? Do you see muscles and flexibility and stamina and strength? Great, cause so do I. But if it’s the first and only thing that you see, that’s where you’re wrong. Because do you know what I first see? I see desire and pain and desperate love. I see feelings. And that’s what you should see too.

PREACH

preach till the cows come home bb

YES

At last someone said it! I like sports like rhytmic gymnastics, but they have nothing to do with ballet! And if I see ballet at the Olympics I think I’ll die!

Ballet is ART and everyone must remember it!

thought this has to be brought up every once in a while. dear new followers, reading this is a sine qua non for following me :)
