more ballet love

this is mesmerizing, a reminder to fight my vacation slothfulness at least long enough to do some ballet exercises of my own (beginner's version of course).

Vera Karalli doing a very naturalistic portrayal of the dying swan, supremely gorgeous.

and to follow the old, a video of Uliana Lopatkina doing the dying swan much more recently. it's interesting to see how different the interpretations are, though both hurt my heart equally, from the emotion of the scene to the sheer beauty of it.

  1. These are beautiful in the saddest way possible. Maybe not the saddest, but def in the hurt the heart type of way.
