The Russian Ballerina

San Francisco has a large Russian population including many skilled artists. I'll bet the guy who danced with me last Friday evening was a professionally trained ballet artist: he began to do twirls and leaps that would be breathtaking on the Kirov stage, but were somewhat cramped in the wedding tent that is El Mansour. Everyone was thrilled by his exuberant antics then surprised and delighted when, at the end of his impromptu performance, he paused, put his hand on top of his head, then in one quick motion swept off his toupee and made a flourishing bald bow!
