Ballet dancer in the mirror

Ballet dancer in the jewelry box Once upon a time I met with the wonderful lady. Svetlana lives in the hostel in the Stavropol State Regional Theater of Operetta Svetlana worked as a ballet dancer 25 years in opera and operetta throughout the Soviet Union, and she spent the last 12 in this very theater, and having retired, began teaching ballet for children. Her life is filled with dance. Her gesture betrays ballet grace. A tiny woman huddled on the eleven square meters and feels in her jewelry box amazingly comfortable. She flits around their routine affairs, as if in a dance steps, a lot of smiles and says that if she had the choice again, who to become, without delay, she would become a ballerina. She is alien to the modern material world, filled with a desire for most comfortable living conditions. It is not even a compromise on her part. This is a complete harmony.
