Has anyone an update on how this delightful student at the Vaganova School is faring?

Very interesting artist. Most unusual these days to see someone who can get across to the public the emotion which the music and the dancing raise up in them.

At so advanced a level, the wild joy of the dance has generally been crushed out of people and replaced by clich├ęs, "generically pleasing moves" according to the fashion of the day.

Ziganshina has technique. If the girl can but hold onto that joy and emotional openness, she will prove an "original" in an otherwise somewhat desolate landscape.

Ksenia Zhiganshina participated as one of the corps girls in the Le Jardin Anime scene from Le Corsaire in the Vaganova graduation performances this year. Following that she went to Finland in July to take part in some master classes there for Finnish schools, and she is returning there also this month. She was successful in her end of year examinations and received several offers of contracts from Russian companies, but will be studying for another 2 years at the Vaganova.

NOTE: Administrator needs to remove all of the 'longtian006' posts in 3 or 4 threads, as this seems to be a spammer who has shuffled old posts and dropped them in the wrong threads. I just checked the Mariinsky forum but this may also have affected other fora in CD.

For an idea of what Ksenia looks like, here is a video she has posted online of her November 11th Hermitage Theatre pas de deux from "The Nutcracker" -- gorgeous feet:
