The title basically explains what im looking for. Who do you think works best together and why?

i think that Alina Cojocaru and Johan Kobborg dance so well together (and it helps that they are together off stage too) watching them do Gisele is just amazing.

also anything with Diana Vishneva and Vladimir Malakhov gives me goosebumps

and Lucia Lacarra and Cyril Pierre do Lady of the Camiellias beautifully on youtube

You allready mentioned Malakhov and Vishneva. I also think they fit together perfect. You can see that they really like each in private life when they´re on stage, there´s really a connection between them.

But for Malakhov this is not the only partnership that works well. He and Polina Semionova or he and Nadja Saidakova are also great together. There again you can also see that they like each other in private life.
Actuall I haven´t seen any ballerina yet who looked bad next to Malakhov. :D But the partnership Malakhov - Vishneva is the best out of all. And then I would follow with Semionova and then Saidakova.

Semionova and Ronald Savkovic also look great together. I´d like to see Semionova and Christian Krehl (longer then short dancing scenes I saw together in Cinderella) together once, to find out if the private partnership between them would also reflect on stage.

Marian Walter and Iana Salenko are incredible together. They too like each other in private life (hey, they´re even married. ;) )

Iana Salenko also looks good with Dinu Tamazlacaru, but with Marian Walter it´s better (even though I prefer Dinu in general, but when it comes to partnership it´s Walter who looks better next to Iana).

My favourite dancer Mariane Joly mostly had to partner Robert Wohlert, but I don´t think he´s a good partner for her. She looked best next to Dinu Tamazlacaru. She and Dinu was really great to watch.

In the past Nureyev and Fonteyn where amazing together.

Most perfect Pas de Deux partnerships like each other a lot in private life. It must not be love, but being very close friends is enough.

^ yes i totally agree with you Kathy. i think Malakhov and Nadja work well together too (they were students of the same academy) and he and polina work very well together in swan lake.

yes i LOVE watching iana and marian

also, ive never seen them live, but Julie Kent and Jose Carreno or Angel Corella are always paired together in shows. so they must work together well

^I think Gillian is a good actress, well I've only seen her in videos but oh well.

Again all the couples I'm going to mention i've never got the chance to see them live, but I've seen videos and pictures!

Alessandra Ferri and Julio Bocca

I believe al of this are from Manon.

The video is very bad quality, but still you can look at them together www.youtube.com . . .

I also like Angel Corella and Paloma Herrera together

Hate to be cliche and mention Ethan Stiefel and Gillian Murphy again haha... but they were hands down the best couple I've ever seen (live, anyway) Their black swan PDD was actually stunning- besides the AMAZING virtuosity, they had such great chemistry, it was just incredible. Definitely definitely definitely the best black swan PDD I've EVER seen!!

I like the Matvienkos together. I have only seen them in Don Q on stage as Basil and Kitri and they have been flirting the whole time like it should be. Tonight I go to watch the same Don Q again with other dancers and I wonder how they will be together.

Here Anastasia and Denis
