discriminating and persnickety ballet aficionado
That has been what I've been trying to say all along in response to starry poster. Also that kids who don't know things like that are not unique to Tutberidze. Other qualities of her training are lets say, different (I don't know anyone else who drags their students across the ice,) but being dependent on the entourage for the mundane things is common.Because a lot of us are responding to the actual subject of the thread and a very specific system that Tutberidze describes as the formula for success.
I'm sure that Uno could learn the life task skill of knowing what size he is in the time it would take him to look at the label in his clothing.
