Somebody just loaned me a tape with quite a bit of footage of Viviana Durante from Royal Ballet. I have a new favorite! She's perfection...

Oh yes that is a beautiful video with some lovely variations done beautifully by the fairies also. She is really lovely in all the variations on that. Quite brilliant.

Suzanne Farrell without a doubt.I went to her lecture at harvard last year and it was very informative.

my other favorite dancers are David Hallberg of ABT - he has exquisite lines for a male dancer , Nicole Rhodes of Royal Danish Ballet , Anna Polikarpova of the Hamburg Ballet - her adagio is amazing and she has so much warmth on stage, Lorna Feijoo of the Boston Ballet - she is so powerful both in her tecnique and her artistry - i saw her dance the most breathtaking white swan last year... , and Francoise Voranger of Jose Mateo's Ballet Theater - still very young (19yrs i think) but has strong technique and is passionate...she will be an interesting one to watch in the future.

I think that one of my favorite teachers is Victoria Mazzerelli (sp?). She is a great teacher!!! My only problem with her is the fact that I have a trouble paying attention when she teaches because she has such amazing feet and legs it is hard to pay attention to anything else...lol.

Maria Kowroski- I saw her live last year and she was absolutely amazing!!! I also love Patricia Barker, because my body is very similar to hers, and Julie Kent too.

I have always loved watching videos of Anthony Dowell, if we're to go with current dancers Gonzalo Garcia at SFB has really impressed me.

Sorry....I left out two of my favorites.....Carlos Acosta and Leanne Benjamin! It really is hard to come up with a list since each dancer has particular strengths that are different from another dancer's strengths.
