Поздравления, Joy Womack!

Joy Womack is about to become the first American to ever graduate from the Bolshoi Ballet Academy.

Read the story.


  1. "A measure of the school's ethos is its strict caps on the students' weight: 96 pounds for those who are 5'6", for instance. Ballerinas tipping the scale at 110 pounds are not allowed to participate in a duet class, but are required to observe it."

    Nice. Scare 'em skinny and humiliate the fatties. I approve.

  2. She is inspiring; she left her family at 15 to go pursue her dreams in a country so far from what she knew and in a different tongue... congratulations Joy!!
