Svetlana Zakharova

Recommended Posts


WOW! I do have to admit Svetlana is my new favorite dancer. I have watched all her videos on YouTube and I adore her. Her artistry, length, articulation, extension, control, and body are all phenomenal! I heard she is over 5' 8" which makes me very excited!! :yawn:

I watched some videos of her dancing online and she is amazing! She seems to have very good extensions and control of her body while dancing.

She has her own website.




And if you go to Amazon.com and type her under DVD's something shoukd come up. I ordered a video of her doing Giselle from Amazon.


She is an amazing dancer!!!

I found it ironic that the members who have seeen her in Swan lake with Robert Bolle were so critical because when I watched it I felt like she had captured the essence of the swan so beautifully.


She is also one of my absolute favorite dancers.

I know, some people say her extension is too much, but i think she's gorgeous! I would give anything for her extension haha

Yeah, I own the version of Swan Lake from the La Scalla Ballet with her and Roberto Bolle, and I LOVE IT!!! It was the best version I have EVER seen!!

I don't understand how her extension could be considered too much. I mean, dance pushes further as time goes on. We turn faster, jump higher, and push the boundaries of our extension, etc. As long as it's used with artistry, I see no problems.


I think Zakharova is gorgeous and I have only seen her in video clips but I can never take my eyes off her.

I have merged this topic with the existing one. Since there is already a list of repertoire on her website let's not waste bandwidth here repeating it. :)
