From A Beautiful Tragedy… June 16, 2012

This is NOT my critique of Oxana Skorik, so let’s not have any whining about that. But please watch. I’ll comment in the next post

Update: this video has been made private by its producer.  I will describe it this way: it was a collection of Oxana Skorik’s most unimaginably horrible moments on stage.

9/12 update: this video has long since been taken away from public view by its producer.  I’m keeping the thumbnail up because I love her feet, lol.

    I am so intrigued/amazed/disturbed by this video. As I watched it, my jaw dropped and my eyes were so big I must have looked ridiculous. I’ve only seen clips of A Beautiful Tragedy but still knew who Skorik was. I’m not sure what to think about it all. I do feel safe, however, saying that Skorik has beautiful extensions and beautiful arms. Honestly, I think if she could look as if she enjoyed performing and really pour her heart into the acting, her dancing would seem 100x better. I think I said that in my previous comment but I really do believe it!

    Anyway, I am not a person who likes to criticize, especially when my own ballet skills are seriously lacking! I’ve only been en pointe a few months so forget hopping across a stage on my toes. That’s not going to happen any time terribly soon. : )

      I think as ballet fans we are bound to have opinions. It is fine to share them.

      I did see a rehearsal video of Skorik where she looked really promising, Obviously that couldn’t be included in this collection of disasters. I also saw a video of her in the Bluebird pas de deux and thought she was a little cold, but just fine. Like you I tend to think that if she could just relax and be happy, the difference would be incredible.

      I wish you well in your ballet studies. Pointe is serious business, but you will one day find yourself hopping across the stage on your toes.
