In the New York Times, Clifford J. Levy writes an extensive feature article on two American students who are studying at the Bolshoi Academy in Moscow.

I watched the video linked to the article. I think it is really awful that she was forced to dance on such a bad foot; she broke it during the performance. This could have been career-ending for her...horrible. I don't care if they are the Bolshoi! Bad decision on their part...I don't agree with this behavior at all.
