Today, I dedicate Saturdance to my Idol........... Diana.

There’s little question in anyone’s mind that Diana Vishneva, a graduate of the Vaganova School in St. Petersburg, Russia, and a principal dancer with the Kirov (Maryinksy) Ballet, is one of the great ballerinas of our time. An impeccable technician, with a gloriously supple body.

But leaving the technique aside, I find her dancing to be the most deeply intense and passionate out there, she brings a remarkable dramatic intelligence and theatrical savvy to every roles, I tell ya, can be quite remarkable to witness.

“As a member of a big company, you never have the chance to feel independent in your creative life,” says Vishneva. “Of course it’s great to do the classical repertoire, but I am always looking for something else too. If you are not growing as an artist, you might as well stop.” Diana Vishneva

Many xoxoxo! and happy Saturdance!!!
