Taglioni did 45 arabesques because the technique was so...But would you like to see her arabesque in a performance nowadays?I'd not.

I would pay what i don't have just to be able to see Taglioni...even if doing a motionless romantic pose... :)

In my opinion, if the dancer really does have the ability, there is no reason for them to not do the step; however, they must be carefully taught when it is appropriate, and that it must always suit the music. They must also continue to develop other aspects of their technique and not focus on one step or style to the exclusion of others.
