One To Watch? Eleonora Sevenard, student at Vaganova Academy

Eleonora Sevenard is a student at the Vaganova Academy in St Petersburg. She’s in her 6th year, soon to be 7th year class, which means she graduates end of 2017. She is perhaps 17 years old here.

The pas de deux “Искупление” (Atonement) choreographed by Kseniya Zvereva is danced to John William’s Schindler’s List theme. Sevenard is partnered by Manuel Garrido from Spain.

To my eye its a lovely piece, and Sevenard displays an artistic maturity and musicality rare for her years.

The first video is “Atonement” entire. Her grasp of technique and security of execution is evident in the second video, a variation from Petipa’s “Cavalry Halt”.

Who knows what she will go on to do? The world is full of promising young dancers, but for now, enjoy the videos.
