Telegraph Names Georgian Prima Ballerina Among Greatest Dancers

Prominent Georgian prima ballerina Nina Ananiashvili has been named among the top ballet dancers in the world by the Telegraph.

The British media outlet published the list of 12 of the greatest ballerinas of all time and the Georgian is among them.

“Alluring grace, enticing mystique, personal magic, instinctive expressiveness and the technical wizardry to draw the public with her into unvoiceable passions and dreams - these qualities separate the handful of true ballerinas from the legions of mere female ballet-dancers,” the Telegraph stated.

Currently the Georgian-born Bolshoi-trained Nina Ananiashvili is artistic director of the State Ballet of Georgia.
