Ballone Choreography in a Variation

Recommended Posts

Hello!

Just joined the site today after scouring the internet for some classical choreography to teach in class and not finding what I'm looking for.

I was hoping to go into ballone a little with my students this week (we focused on ballote last week), and have stuck in my brain some piece of classical choreography from a famous ballet that I did in a summer intensive years ago but can only remember the the few ballones in it.  I don't remember if it was a variation (I think it was) or a piece with the whole corps, but there were several saute ballones facing en face, I believe moving upstage with the coupe back. It literally is from Don Q, or Coppelia or something but I can't remember! Anyone know the name of the variation or ballet it's in? I'd like to teach it to my class and hope with the name I can at least find it on youtube, thanks!

Alas, your description fits a multitude of solos.  But you might try looking at the fairy variations from Sleeping Beauty -- I learned several of them as a student, and remember those steps figuring in at least a couple.

You might have more luck over at Ballet Alert's sister website -- Ballet Talk for Dancers.  There are plenty of teachers there who might be able to answer your question.  (

Ahhh that's what I was worried about. It's such a well known one but I can't for the life of me remember from what from. I'll check out the sister website, thanks for the tip!

The dream scene from Don quixote, where Cupid leads Don Q around (in Russian productions with little Cupid’s) with the dryads has many ballones.

Thanks @Fraildove ! That's not the one I'm thinking of, but that that might be some good material to teach them as well!
