This French/American hybrid has a distinct lactic flair. Her legs longer, prettier and always higher than required have become a trademark that her public has come to expect. Miss Gruyere takes offense at the attack by some of her colleagues that she is cheesy and tasteless. She graciously forgives these comments knowing they are rooted in understandable jealousy. Also she would like to forgive all her fellow ballerinas for not being French.
