Hello, did you hear about Lauren Cuthbertson taking Oksana Skorik’s place in “Sylvia”? She partnered with Xander Parish in St. Petersburg. I think it’s wonderful that someone outside the Mariinsky was asked to dance the role of Sylvia. Yet alone that a foreigner was asked to fill in the spot 🙂 i hope you have an amazing day and thank you for all the time and work you put into this blog!

I did and I’m very happy for her. I think Lauren is not only a wonderful ballerina but a beautiful person, inside and out. I like seeing good things happen to people who truly deserve them. Also, I believe that she and Xander made history by being the first British partners to lead a performance at the Mariinsky.
