Semionova and Malakhov

Gymnastics Coaching posted a great video of the famous ballet dancer Polina Semionova.

“She’s no Shawn Johnson, but there’s some potential here.

Polina Semionova became first principal (ballet) dancer under Vladimir Malakhov, who came to Berlin in 2002. He´s not only the artistic director of the Berlin Staatsballett, but also one of the best ballet dancers ever. I saw Semionova and Malakhov several times (“Dornröschen” / “Sleeping Beauty” which Malakhov choreographed; “Malakhov & Friends”) and they are just absolut phenomenal when they dance together.

Here´s another video. They rehearse for “La Bayadere”:

If you wanna see a funny ballet dance (“Cinderella”) in which Malakhov dances a ugly stepsister (in the purple dress) and Semionova dances Cinderella, click play or watch it on YouTube.

Here´s another gorgeous scene with Malakhov and Semionova from Cinderella.

    I love that last ballet. It’s rare to see males go en point and his lines are great!. She is such a beautiful dancer.
