A good stretch goes a long way - so does a stretching partner.

Russian prima ballerina Svetlana Lunkina of the Bolshoi Ballet warms up!

I soooo want to photograph a dancer with dramatic lighting like this! I love the graceful lines their bodies make.

Yepp, that's the same face I make when I stretch.
