Dance-spiration Friday: Svetlana Zakharova
Ballet is a completely unnatural, unforgiving art form and dance genre. Its physical demand for perfection are something that most professional dancers struggle with their entire lives. A "perfect" ballet dancer would possess a number of physical traits and capabilities, and no one has them all...
Except for rare birds like Svetlana Zakharova. She's what I like to call an "alien." Born with all of the physical traits necessary to be the perfect ballet dancer. High arches, 180 degree rotation in the hips, insane flexibility...the list goes on. Combine all of that with a youth of hard work, and you get perfection.
