NBC video on Russia figure skating and ballet
Thanks. The directress saying if you come to the school and shouldn't, your life will be RUINED. Oh, my. lol
Yes-I just read an article from GB about the Royal Ballet and their school that feeds into it...and how only about 30% of the lower school reach the upper school and how devastated the kids are when they are let go. I don't have an answer for that one. Cruel, but standards are standards and sometime I think it is mental and work ethic as much as physical. I don't think Russians pamper their students at all.
But whatever-that was a lovely video-thanks for posting it!

Not quite that...... she said (approximately this): that if one does not have the "special talent/qualities/forms/abilities" - then one should not bother coming here (to the school) and (after going through hell training)to ruin one's life.
