So You Wish You Could Dance

For today's installment of "So You Wish You Could Dance," I am digging into the archives for one of my favorite ballet videos: a music video for Herbert Groenemeyer starring Polina Semionova.  Even though I don't understand a single word of German, I can tell you that the song is uber-cheesy.  But Polina . . . she's breathtaking.



And because I love rehearsal, backstage, and class videos, here's a bonus of Polina rehearsing "La Bayadere" with Vladimir Malakhov.  If you don't watch it for her dancing, watch it for Malakhov's awesome Smurf prison jumpsuit.



Off to sew ribbons on my new pointe shoes that just arrived!

Sigh....this makes me want to be a ballerina. Badly.

I am not a fan of german music, but I can assure you that Grönemeyer is not cheesy. In fact, he wrote the music for "the american". Pretty talented guy.
The video is just breathtaking.
