    WHEN SOVIET BALLERINA GALINA ULANOVA RETIRED FROM THE STAGE IN 1962 SHE DID NOT PART COMPANY WITH THE WORLD OF BALLET - TODAY SHE TEACHES AT THE BOLSHOI CHOREOGRAPHIC SCHOOL, TRAINING PEOPLE TO TAKE THE STAGE THAT SHE ONCE GRACED SO WELL.

    GALINA ULANOVA'S TWO MOST PROMISING PUPILS NOW ARE YEKATERINA MAXIMOVA AND VLADIMIR VASILYEV. ACCORDING TO THEIR TEACHER, THEY ARE PROBABLY ONE OF THE BEST PAIRS OF DANCERS IN THE THEATRE'S BALLET.
