Olympic Ballet

I know I am a few days late on this but if you caught the opening ceremonies of the Olympics in Sochi, Russia you saw the gorgeous ballet dancing that was center of the worlds stage.  I was awestruck by the beauty, grace, and artistry.  What a way to start off the athletic competitions!

Svetlana Zakharova was just effortless in this piece.  I loved the ballroom dancing as well!

I was floored when I saw who was dancing.  I could recognize those banana feet anywhere!

Diana Vishneva I thought really brought a lot of personality to the “Peace Dove” presentation.  At first, honestly thought it was a little weird.  I was like, “Are they jelly fish?  Look at the squishies!”  As it went on, I got into it and saw it differently.  It was really breathtaking!

Here is a link to see the “Peace Dove” in it’s entirety..

Now excuse me while I will be glued to my TV for the next few weeks while the Olympics are on because I am an Olympic fanatic and I can’t get enough of almost any event!

  1. I did a post on this a couple of days ago, I was sooooo baffled by the amount of ballet and ballet-related things in the show. It was gorgeous. And like you said, I too could recognize those banana-feet everywhere!! 😉
    It was really cool seeing Diana perform after I’ve seen her live, it’s just that extra more special 🙂
