I tell you one secret. All of them are ordinary fans, serious nuts start when people watch novice Russian ladies (from 7 to 10 yo) on daily basis
here
https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC7IvcuUJ4AH19WO...

Than they mesure their skating skills, presentation, execution and so on, rate them (here, for example http://s15.zetaboards.com/figureskating/topic/1...
And when they find new talanted girl they write about it in official Eteri's group in VK (like hey, look here, I've found new potential olympic gold medalist, her average rotation speed is almost 6 rotations per secon bla bla)

OMG, her spin at 2:45 gives me chills.
And they are very happy if that girl is transfered to Eteri group in a month or two.
That's what I call serious nuts

Well, why would you be interested in ballet? But anyway, there are all sorts of ballet — Classical Ballet, Romantic Ballet, Contemporary Ballet, Neo Classical Ballet, Cecchetti method (this is what my daughter is doing — Cecchetti Classical Ballet — it's French school although the founder of the school — Enrico Cecchetti was Italian you see, French method, Vaganova method (they use some of it in our school as well, our Head of school is a great fan of Russian ballet cause she was lucky to attend a junior ballet school by the French National ballet which was headed by Nuryev at the time, took part in his production of Romeo and Juliet but she admits he didn't rate her high as he thought her physique was not up to scratch — honestly, she told me that herself), Bournonville method and so on.

I like ballet too. Not a fan, but I watch it from time to time. Sometimes I watch Bolshoi trailers like this one


Btw, are there Bolshoi ballet in Cinema in Britain?

I bet you like classical ballet most of all? Or you have several favorite types of ballet?

Yep, as one of the GS dwellers said «that half-assed proposal won't save their butts, it is too late now »

That's madness. But to be fair — I have an obsessive personality as well, it cost me a lot of money. I am a Tiger by Chinese calendar you know — and Chinese say that Tigers can get big money but can never keep it. That's me. Thank God that my husband is different. He is a saver by nature. His Grandad had lots of money, drove a Rolls Royce, which in those days not a lot of people here could afford (I am talking war times). And he still counted every penny, put 50p on his mantelpiece, etc. — saved money all the time. During war times (I am talking second world war here) — my mother in law was a little girl and she had a German nanny, who used to collect metallic tubes from used toothpaste, roll them up and send them to Germany, cause she thought she helped her country cause they needed metal. My husband's Grandad didn't mind (can you believe it ???? Germany was at war with Britain), cause he liked her and thought she was a great person for saving everything. To someone like me — being originally from Russia — that's really a little too far.

I agree with Grin about Ukraine, but about Londom riots-- i remember, i watched it live in BBC, it was sooo great! Just crazy. First «kids riot» in the world-- if we talk about age.

Of course not, don't be silly now. The main stage here is Royal Opera House. I know «Opera» can throw one off, but do you know what they call a ballerina? Petite rat d'Opera. Literal explanation — in French

Le terme de rat, attesté chez Honoré de Balzac et Théophile Gautier, a donné lieu à plusieurs tentatives d'explication: rattaché à l'argot scolaire, il fait partie des métaphores animalières chères aux romantiques (une fois ses études terminées, le «rat «devient «tigre «). Une autre étymologie, non exclusive de la première, en fait une aphérèse de «demoiselle d'opéra «.

It was totally crazy! But noone touched people's houses, London was burning for 3 or 4 days — but only businesses, shops, cars, Government buildings etc. It was epic.



This track came out just after — to celebrate London riots.
