Marianela receives her birthday cake - Royal Ballet LIVE
Once again, it is time to celebrate the birthday of the queen.
Happy birthday to dear Nela! My forever favourite and most beautiful ballerina.. 32 today, hopefully she’ll have a wonderful day with lots of love and happiness.
32 today, I can’t believe it… I wish her a wonderful, happy day and many many more (ballet) years to come for her to bless us all with her talent, her beauty and all her amazingness.
(If you want to wish Nela a happy birthday personally, you can always put a message on her facebook page!)
Watching Nela in La Bayadere. THAT SMILE!!!!
