My partner and I have decided to dance Giselle pas de deux Act II this year.
He loves the Lavrovsky-Bessmertnova version, so we shall work on that basis.
My question: where should the pas de deux end?
My order would be the following:
- adagio
- Giselle and Albrecht (the part in which she does the entrechat 4 sequence)
- Albrechts variation
- Giselle waltz variation (while Albrecht is lying on the floor), which end with she entering the wings with jete pas de chat, followed by him.

Should the pas de deux end there? Or should we add the sequence in which she does 32 bars of entrechat 6 or brises?

thanks a lot!
