Ludmila Pagliero being interviewed (in Spanish with French voice over) about becoming an etoile. I wish she had spoken French - I know speaking on TV in a foreign language is scary but I think it would go a long way towards endearing her with French ballet-goers.

I am impressed by the number of books she has in her dressing room though!

Also, I wonder if she always lines her shoes up like that? Or did the film crew ask her?
