Dutch television has begun airing a series titled Bloed, zweet en blaren, which goes behind the scenes at Dutch National Ballet. The series is in Dutch, of course, but there is lots to see, and English-language conversations are left undubbed. Each episode is about 35 minutes long.

The last shot of Igone de Jongh turning around in her Aurora costume to show a backpack is priceless :)

Thanks for the links! I had heard about this, but did not know how to "get" to it.

The perils of dancing Giselle at high altitude. In Bogota, not Amsterdam, obviously. wink1.gif

Life in the junior company and fitting surgery into a busy dancer's schedule.

My usual browser wasn't giving me any audio, so I tried a different one and the problem was solved. This episode is overwhelmingly in English.

I'm really enjoying this series. It's such a nice change from the drama of Breaking Pointe and even the show about the Royal NZ Ballet. Looking forward to the next episode!

Is anyone else having trouble streaming this series? Mine stops every few seconds and it's driving me crazy... don't have this problem with anything else!

Would it help to pause the stream and then resume watching it when a fair chunk of it is already loaded up?

I tried, it won't pre-load. Might sneak in an after-work session to see if it's my home connection or just the country I live in!

That is peculiar. I tried pre-loading the episode for the sake of argument and was successful. I hope you find a solution!
