I am currenting in ABT summer intensive in New York City. And last week a few girl were allowed in to watch ALESSANDRA FERRI rehearse!!! First of she is so skinny (escpecially for having 2 kids) Plus here feet are absolutly AMAZING!

She broke 2 Pointe shoes in a 30 min. rehearsal!!!!!!!!

PLUS I got her picture and autograph! :)

Any ways.... She is a fabulous dancer

Jaime, you are soo lucky!!!!!! Why don't we have a green eyed monstor icon? Alessandra Ferri is my favorite dancer, and my idol!! I want to be just like her one day! :wacko: I first discovered her when I saw the balcony scene from Romeo and Juliet on tape. It was so breathtaking, I think it was then I decided I had to become a professional, to be able to dance that role. Then I saw her on tape in Giselle, and she made me cry five times over. Gosh, what would I give to meet her! I wrote her a letter back in May, but she hasn't responded yet. :o:D I know she's probably really busy though and must get tons of fan mail, so I'm still waiting and praying every day before I go to the mailbox. What did she say to you? Anything inspiring? Tell, tell! Anyways, I absolutely idolize her, and I hope I can meet her one day!

That's awesome! Do you know what she was rehearsing? How tall do you estimate her to be?

Moved this topic to YD temporarily, until Jaime has been here long enough to be admitted to the Buddy Board, and then I will move it there. :D

I also saw her. I was told she was rehearsing Giselle. Burman was coaching her. To me she looked about 5'5, but I could be wrong because I did not see her up close. :wacko:

Giselle? Yes!!! :ermm: Well, if she truly was, then yes, because I'm dying to see her live in Giselle! It was sooo sad! :innocent: She totally blew me away and won me over with the LaScala version, so I'm dying to see it live! I want to go to NY to see a performance next spring and I'm going to ask to go as a graduation present, gee, I hope they do it next year! :wacko:


I really don't know how tall she is, but she looks really tiny to me, and my teacher told me she is barely five feet tall, but what do I know? I don't want to spread gossip or anything, but I've heard she is very small.
