I personally think that Russian and FSU Dancers are probably the best in the world.
There are many state and professional dance studios in every city and Russian Culture treats this art form with the deepest respect.
Take a look at the photo above to catch a glipse of the absolute perfect pose of this incredible ballerina.
She looks like she is being suspended by invisible wires like they do in Cirque du Soleil. And it’s pretty hard for me to imagine that she’s not so the only thing I can say like most others upon seeing this is..
“How do they do that!?!?”
Well luckily this timeless artform is about to get some international exposure with the latest release of a documentary film called “Ballerina”.
Ballerina spotlights the drive of Russian dancers
By R.M. CAMPBELL
Russian dancers have long been the subject of fascination, sometimes the men and sometimes the women. It would appear from “Ballerina,” a documentary about the Kirov Ballet, that women hold the upper edge today.
This film by Bertrand Normand takes a look at five women at the Kirov: two established stars, one hoping for a comeback after an injury, and two are young aspirants, bursting with talent and ambition.

Say hello to the lovely Miss Katya.
Katya is a striking and “bewitching” young lady from Central Kazakshtan.
She enjoys studying English and has a great desire to utilize her knowledge to prepare for some future travels to Europe and the US that she often dreams about.
I met her last week at a friendly Texas Hold’em game that I was invited to. She was there as a friend of a friend’s girlfriend.. or something like that..
She never played the game before so I was more then happy to teach her the rules and some basic strategy. Well something interesting happened on the way to counting the poker chips.
First off in the very first hand she ever played she got a King High Royal Flush.
And keep in mind this is a hand that I have NEVER seen before in all the years I’ve played poker.
From that point on this 19 year old emerald eyed enchantress proceeded to eventually clean out the 8 other players at the table including myself..
Beginners luck indeed.
Or did I just meet Lady Luck instead?
Well in anycase I wised up pretty quickly and realized that I certainly didn’t need to “help” a spellbinding young woman who already held all the cards..
(In more ways then one I might add.)
In anycase she was gracious enough to give me a conciliatory price and allow me to snap some stunning photos of her.
So I guess in that regard..
You and I are the ones who really ended up with the winning hand.

“What are YOU doing here?!”
Christine’s excitement couldn’t be contained as she leaped across the LAX ticket counter and embraced me with a delirious mix of surprise and hidden anticipation.
She was still on duty but a call to her girlfriend in the back office quickly remedied that.
I only had a 3 hour layover but in a few minutes we found ourselves at the local Denny’s with two 7am grand slam specials being delivered to our booth.
Christine was still wearing her stunning two piece baby blue airline uniform with her hair in a sexy retro-style bun.
Our reunion was just one happy blur to me since it was always great to be in the company of such a beautiful woman..
Especially one who was so attentive to my every word.
I guess for that reason Christine was always a paradox.
Because one moment she was an explosive package of dark sensuality highlighted with a look that could kill.
And in the next moment her sweetness could surpass the maple syrup that slowly worked it’s way down her freshly buttered pancakes.
Halfway through our exercise in shared gluttony her eyes took a serious tone.
“Hey I need to tell you something.”
My posture straightens as I gave the “all clear” facial signal that she needed to see in order to start her latest confessional.
“I’ve hooked up with a strange crowd and I don’t understand why”
