May I just say… Up until about 3 hours ago I really was not a big fan of Somova. But now all has changed!! She was the PERFECT Juliet, she is a fantastic actress and while her technique wasn’t spot on all the time - it doesn’t…
I LOVE SEEING POSTS LIKE THIS

Anonymous said: Hi! I love your blog and you look like a marvelous dancer. I recently made the difficult decision to quit ballet because I realized that I have gone as far as I can in my dance career due to my weight. Though I understand that petite dancers have longer lines, it still sucks that I, being a size 6 (in US), am "skinny" in the real world but too large to dance professionally. I just want you to be thankful for your gorgeous body, and know that I will be dancing vicariously through you!
this made me really sad but at the same time it did remind me to be grateful…when I’m feeling frustrated with my body I will remember this, though I wish it didn’t have to be like this for so many people :(
