A rehearsal setting video of the movement or a still of the position - front and side views (and back might be nice too)

A performance video example of the same movement (with information about the performance)

This is exactly what I would like too; a comprehensive video library of the moves. I've found the fact that I speak French to be of little help when it comes to working out what the moves involve, e.g. Úpaulement - obviously something to do with the shoulders but beyond that I have no clue. The ABT one is pretty much what I would hope for, but comprehensive.

Just FYI ---- not as convenient as an iPod/iPhone app, but all video all the time is THE VIDEO DICTIONARY OF CLASSICAL BALLET, which is 2 DVD's on KULTUR. It came out a while back (the 80's? 90's??) and features the young Merrill Ashley and Kevin MacKenzie as two of the dancers. It's 4.5 hours, but well indexed, and features a narration with very clear definitions.

I do, however, intend to download the very handy iPod version, so thanks!
