Not up on the latest news about this kid, but I found a video of one of her performances in the 2014 International Ballet Competition in Moscow (age approximately 15).  It’s a variation from Act 1 of Giselle.  I was struck by how her movement quality seemed to hint at what’s to come in Act II, when Giselle is a ghost.  I’ve seen lots of Giselles and never really saw that before in anyone else’s interpretation.

Enjoy:  Giselle by Giselle
