Watchful Mother - Vera Dorofeyeva

As an accomplished Russian Language teacher, Watchful Mother is especially suited to her role as Assistant Director of the Vaganova Ballet Academy, school of the Kirov. Engaging her bilingual skills, she has assisted innumerable visiting ballet students, apprentices and guest teachers in acclimatizing to the Russian way of life.

She shares a passion for mother Russia that is infectious. Friend and confidante to all, she was house mother to the youth traveling with the Vaganova Ballet.

This Arkangel likeness captures her trademark greeting gesture -- the slight, but notable formal bow, and a somewhat reserved smile that nonetheless shines an irrepressible twinkle into her eyes!

"You can be weaned from the things of this world
as gently as a child outgrows its mother's breast."

-- Rainer Marie Rilke Duino Elegies
