1995-1996 ball routine is particularly worth
watching. Unlike most ball routines, its music is
light but has a deep tone with sonority. It is
pretty amazing that such a superb routine is
choreographed well suited to the music “”.
Known for her Belorussian style (because she is a
Belorussian), this lively routine is definitely an
example of it.
the accompaniment rhythm (you can it repeating
throughout the routine) echo, Lukyanenko begins
her routine by following the background pace
exactly. As the main theme first appears, she
performs a little roll of the ball. The manner she
plays with the ball reminds me of a comedian!
Vigilantly, she rises up a leg to perform a
perfect vertical toe that changes into a
Timochenko. Subsequently, she places the ball in
the middle of her legs as she kneels down to

Lukyanenko performs a striking unassisted leg up

She unleashes a large throw diagonally then,
executing a turning split leap and then a
downwards toebreaker to catch the ball between her
legs. Undeniably difficult.

spectacular moves. First, she rolls the ball from
her left leg down her body. Getting up, she
prepares herself for a back catch balance, placing
the ball between her back and her free leg.
Swiftly, she rotates her free leg to form a front
legmount. As loud music blasts out finally, she
falls to the ground and ends in a crouching
dramatic routine adds up the atmosphere. From a
seemingly simple music, Lukyanenko is able to
convey an interesting story through a splendid
