Marina Rzhannikova -- Moscow City Ballet
She is a lady who seems to have slipped through the cracks of ballet appreciation and not really been much commented on over the years. Like so many wonderful ballerinas she has singular qualities, such as 'Statuesque Effervescence,' that make her distinctively magnificent.
It's really nice to see her mentioned in the press. She will be touring South Africa with the Moscow City Ballet.
