    I also saw the Under Armour video and I'm not sure.....of course MC is one gorgeous dancer. But their angles and lighting emphasized her muscularity so that it looked much more, well, bulky than she normally looks. Those calf muscles looked like they could slice bread. I understand why they did...

    I'm so glad to hear that emason. I know it's very OTT but there are parts and aspects to it that I really love. Some of the music I love....

    Thanks Rob! That was lovely! I saw Irina as Nikia in "Bayadere" some years ago-Gillian Murphy was Gamzatti. (If I could be a ballerina, I'd want to be Gamzatti! Speaking of "juiciness"....that's a juicy role!) So sad to live so far from NYC and other major cities where great dance seems to...
