"Jockey Dance" from From Siberia to Moscow

This 3-minute gem of a dance, seen during the final gala of the just-completed Festival, is usually danced by two men. On Saturday, we saw two women (Bojesen and Lindstrom) dance it. Quite a nice surprise!

Is this the first time that it has been danced by women? Does anybody know?

I have seen it danced once before by women, Eva Kloborg and Linda Hindberg. If my memorie is correct they were not as charming as Bojesen and LindstrÝm in the piece. They tried a more masculin approach

I've a question too, just how many jockey dances did Bournonville actually create? There was another (solo) jockey dance in the second act of Le Conservatoire.

Probably just the two, but you must remember that the conservatorie is a reconstruction and it therefore is very likely that this jockey is a paraphase of the other. The other is also reconstructed but is based on the 1890ties Elfelt films
