No comment possible or required. Maya Plisetskaya was the most beautiful woman I ever saw and the most graceful. This is from a YouTube posting. Saint-Saens’ music was never better served. Prepare to be hypnotized.
And there is this–a very unclassical dance to Ravel’s Bolero. Plisetskaya was not only graceful, she was torrid. I don’t know why this is in two parts, but it’s worth the switch in mid-dance.
