  1. Hi everybody! I know I'm getting annoying, but now that I started ballet, every time I see a variation I want to know every step of it! But I have difficult on recognizing them, especially the jumps! I know that here you are all competent and experienced (as well as very kind in answering my questions:) ), so I'd like so much if you could tell me the names of these jumps (3:11, 3:52 and 6:37... maybe the 6:37 one is a sissonne...?) from the pas de trois of the act 1 of Swan Lake: Thank you!!
  2. Thank you so much! I think I've understand more now 😘😘
  3. Hi! When I do assemblé and brisé, they seem the same jumps to me, I think they're really similar, and I can't recognize the differences. Can someone please explain me the differences between the two? Thanks as always
  4. Thank you very much! I didn't know this jump at all, I'm very glad you made me discover it
  5. Hi everyone I fell in love with a jump that Kitri does in the first act of Don Quixote, but I don't know how it's called... can someone tell me the name please? The jump to which I refer is at the minute 2:39 of the video that I link you. I hope in a your answer, thank you as always!
  6. I completely agree with you, Helene. Your point of view is really deep I also think that Aurora "matures" when she's sleeping, as the Prince.
  7. Yes, I agree with the fact that is a competition, and so the characher of Aurora isn't the same that would be in the ballet, and I think that the dancer would change it if it was in a full production too Now I think this variation in a different way. Thank you for your answer
  8. Hi! In this period, I'm often watching the Aurora Vision variation, and I wonder if there is a specific way to portrait the characher of Aurora in this variation or it's a choice of the version of the ballet, it varies by the different companies etc... For example, in this video of the variation Laura Fernandez smiles and I don't find it appropriate in this part of the ballet, that is quite "sad". What do you think about this?
  9. Hi everyone, Can you help me please? I'd like so much to know from which ballet is the music of this exercise of the Vba. Here is the video: https://youtu.be/wAKfr15ceU0. The minute is 11:35. Thanks so much! 😊😊❤
  10. Yes, I also think that! I've seen it in some productions that I don't remember... Which are?
  11. Can you explain me why in the Sleeping Beauty, in the first act, when Aurora pretenders offer to her their roses for the second time she throws them away? I always asked myself 😅 Thank you in advance and I hope you will have a beautiful 2019 😊❤
  12. Hi cubanmiamiboy, I understand your opinion NYCB version is the most beloved and I myself love it. I've made this survey for hear other people' s opinion, so thank you all!
  13. Thank you all! :)) I also like NYCB version, but I've discovered the Mariinsky version and I love it! What do you think about this?
  14. Hi! Now it's The Nutcracker season, and I wanted to do a survey. Which is the best version of The Nutcracker in your opinion and why?
