It is amazing how classical ballet shapes the identity of a young person!

“– just beautiful!! a rare level of caliber in technique and artistry at this age🏆.

Found that the young dancer Anastasia studies at Children’s Ballet Academy of Ekaterina Gromova in St. Petersburg, Russia… also found this photo posted on the wall of the school’s VK site (aka, VKontakte, is a Facebook-like Russian social media platform with millions of users; it is currently banned in US and many other countries)… it is also on their Instagram account.. 

The photo is from the wall of the actual ballet school, posted to promote “our summer schedule” (2006).”
