I do not know if it is the impending yet so deliciously commercial Valentine's Day, but recently I have had more love for romantic ballet than normal. "Romantic" in the sense that it is not Romeo and Juliet but that it was rendered in the 19th century during the Romanticism movement.  Giselle and La Sylphide come to mind along with some other Dutch Bournonville stuff.

Lucky for me my teacher has us doing Balanchine, and by lucky I mean Balanchine is, like, the opposite of Romantic ballet, verging on contemporary. Not hating on B though, it just is shitty timing!

To conclude my sentiments here is the extraordinary Ms. Osipova and her wonderful ballone!
