Anonymous asked: Svetlana isn't that tall though! I'm 5'7 and she's smaller than me. Not by a lot but still smaller. Do you think companies sometimes lie about dancers heights?
well, I didn’t say she was the tallest ballerina I’ve seen, but in comparison to some other dancers, e.g. Genia, she’s not a dwarf either (; and something around 5’7 isn’t tiny for ballet, is it? no, I don’t think companies lie about dancers’ heights or weights. what’s the point? the ones who desperately want to find out the accurate ‘data’ will manage to anyway.

maybe I’m going insane, but I had a dream that Alexander Volchkov was a serial killer and that I did all the stupid things one can think of to… start dating Tyoma Belyakov! I think I need to see a doctor, like what, for Willy Wonka’s sake, is that supposed to mean?!
Anonymous asked: Idk for some reason i thought krysanova was short because she doesn't look tall on stage. Then i read somewhere that she was almost as tall as sveta i just felt like (>v<)
you probably won’t believe me, but I had exactly the same thoughts and feelings. I think, Sveta looks taller because she’s thinner and she has a different body structure.
