Hello hello hello fellow Tumblr users! Today marks one year of my stay here at ballet tumblr. [That just makes me sound like I’m renting space here.] Here is a list I have compiled, that is better known as a ‘Follow Forever’. These wonderful people brightened up my dash ever since I first joined the ballet tumblr community.

A special shout out to the wonderful friends I’ve made:
Thank you all for being nice to me and replying to my messages!
I’m so sorry if I forgot to mention someone in my list; I follow so many people!

I asked my Russian language teacher - a fifty year old Russian lady with glasses and that always wears several shawls - what her favourite American ballet company is and she said, not ABT, not even City Ballet, but: “coMPLEXIONS. DESMUNT RICHARRSON. SO BEAUTIFUL MAN.” And she is now my hero.
The Dying Swan (Yevgeni Bauer, 1914)
This was 100 years ago. 100.
Isn’t this Anna Pavlova, though?
That must be Pavlova. Bauer was a Russian film director.
This isn’t Pavlova, it’s Vera Karalli and the film is from 1917 :)
