    Fabrice Calmels

    I haven't seen this posted elsewhere, but in case you missed it Fabrice has announced on Instagram that he's leaving Joffrey and heading to LA. It sounds to me from his wording that he's leaving ballet as well? Or am I reading it wrong?
  2. Lilac fairy variation for me! Those awkward pique turns into fondu tendu side up the diagonal. It just seems like almost every dancer has trouble with them and I'm always cringing in anticipation! 😁
  3. To be fair, Misty got a lot of flack, especially from her fans, for withdrawing completely from Whipped Cream. (Though the blowback might have been worse with such a nebulous excuse as "scheduling conflicts".) No dancer wants to get the reputation of being the one who's always sick or always injured. I understand why Misty's fighting for this--even while agreeing it's not fair that Sarah Lane doesn't get her own O/O. eta: Clarifying my subject.
  4. Possibly from the Ballets Russes du Colonel de Basil tour of S. America during WWII? There were a number of Greek-themed ballets he did of Fokine's if I'm remembering correctly. I know he(Fokine) had a Helen of Troy, which might work for these. Was there a Medusa?
  5. Just saw this post. Thank you! It looks like this recording has the Manu dance, the Indian dance, and the fast ending for Nikiya's Act 2 variation. I've been waiting and hoping for this version for years!
