While on YouTube...be sure to subscribe to "BalletForYou" This contributor has something like....4 Giselle's...5 Sleeping Beauty's....5 Swan Lakes... And the AUTHORITATIVE version of La Syphide..Aurelie Dupont/ Mathieu Ganio. (IMHO)

If you are interested in using twitter I recommend The Ballet Bag on Twitter as a good source. They are in the process of compiling lists of dance/ballet resources on twitter.

@theballetbag/dance-companies -- Following: 18 so far
@theballetbag/ballet-companies -- Following: 31 so far
@theballetbag/choreographers -- Following: 10 so far
@theballetbag/dancers-on-twitter -- Following: 40 so far

Have a look at medici tv. Lots of music and documentaries. A couple of offerings for ballet: click on VOD and then choose Dance.

In today's Links an article by Judith Mackrell pointed to: CyberDance

"CyberDance is an extensive internet dance database containing thousands of links to classical
ballet and modern dance resources on the Internet."

...the AUTHORITATIVE version of La Syphide....


Well, it sure beats the AUTHORITARIAN version, where the Sylph and her Secret Police break down your door at midnight, pillage your house and beat you with rubber hoses.

LibGuides are librarian created guides for students. So far there are about 19 dance guides that have references to ballet.

Search ballet on LibGuides.

MoveTube is Luke Jenning's discussion of ballet clips available on YouTube that is published in the Guardian (UK) newspaper since last October. He describes why particular dancers are so good with enough detail to isolate individual moves. Highly recommended.
