This was full of throwaway moments -- I particularly enjoyed the swiveling 4th position around :25.

In the very firsts video linked (firsts post),  the best part for me is the end.  An elaborate preparation for a pirouette followed by the final triumphant pose, but without the actual pirouette.  Worthy of Carol Burnett, Dawn French, and other great ballerina wannabes.

The problem with these is keeping a straight face when seeing the original.  I recently had to beat down visions of Amelia's drunk ballerina scene from "The Turning Point" during PNB's recent "Giselle" run.

Mumbling my favorite line from "The Turning Point" - "Once more, with no feeling please."  innocent.gif
