Exquisite, astonishingly expressive star of Leningrad's Kirov Ballet; 29. Married to fellow Kirov luminary Konstantin Zaklinsky. "A properly trained body is beautiful in itself. A dancer can sense each instant of music and express a complete range of feelings through it. Of course, this can be taxing. But the pain must not show. Such is our art."
