The first thing you notice about Larissa Gerszke is her legs; beautifully sculpted, lean, and perfectly muscular. Her humble demeanor and curls give a rather reserved impression, but she is far from that when she takes the stage.

Last week, the New York based dance company Complexions performed at the Israeli Opera in Tel Aviv. Among the 15-member group was Gerszke, one of the newest and youngest members of the company, who’s proving to be a complete force of nature. At age 22, the young virtuoso is just finishing up her first season with Complexions.
