Ballet is a highly scripted art form, however, a dancer’s spontaneous interaction with the audience and dance partners following a performance can sometimes be so intense and charged with emotion that it becomes the highlight of an evening or a season. Such exquisite moments are unscripted performances from the heart and soul of charismatic dancers who create magical connections with their audience. They can become poetry without words, and sometimes convey more meaning and feeling than the preceding hours of choreography, costumes, scenery and sound.  Filled with mesmerizing photographs, this book captures the curtain call magic of Diana Vishneva, the world’s prima ballerina, before adoring audiences in New York City, Washington, D.C. and her native St. Petersburg.
