Because my childhood was about ballet which I deeply admire till now I absolutely love this video. It needs no words. Perfect match with music written and performed by Keaton Henson. You also have to visit his own website - so playful and cute.

i love how you can hear her footsteps
I get what you mean, but I’m also wondering if it really is his fault. Maybe they can’t promote more people to principal because there would be too many and maybe some soloists are soloists because of politics and not because of him.
You can say much about him, but he gives some people the right roles. When you look at Yulia Stepanova, she should get more principal roles, but the roles she got are roles which suit her. He gave her queen of the dryads, he could’ve given her cupid, but she probably wouldn’t have fit that.
However, maybe he should be replaces, I don’t know because I’m not in the mariinsky. The question is, will it happen?
Definition: Italian, or French adage, meaning “at ease” ; This is a slow, sustained movement
My definition: Excruciating pain because you are moving your body really slow BUT it’s awesome because you learn muscle control, fluidity and grace
Definition: Brisk, lively motion. An attribute of many movements, including all movements in which a dancer is airborne ; jumps that are performed to a sharp and fast tempo.
My definition: That one exercise in class where you’re everywhere in the room doing grand jetes and sissones and feeling like you’re actually dancing
Definition: Small quick steps
My definition: Your worst nightmare and my one of favourite parts in class
Hope I answered your question, Anon!
