I agree with lavender. To me, Sasha invites you into her world, rather than thrusting herself into your world. I don't see this characterization as a criticism at all. Many of Michelle's greatest performances were like that: Fields of Gold (2002 Oly exhibition), Red Violin (2000 Worlds exhibition version), East of Eden (1998 world pro artistic program), The Feeling Begins short program (2004 worlds performance) are examples.
For that matter, Miles Davis was like that.
