  5. The tap dancing was a part of a very entertaining and funny dance battle between the three male dancers. I thought that dance battle was a hip hop thing?, but it was fantastic to see these great dancers try to outdo each other. Kobborg started off with a amazing solo number, David Makhateli and Steven Mc Rae was yawning and tried to look very unimpressed. Mc Rae answered with a fantastic tap number and he really got the audience with him , to Kobborgs annoyance . David Makhateli refused to participate in the battle but he was forced to dance by Kobborg and Mc Rae, and acting very un

  9. It was a fantastic performance! It was 30 years since I saw The Lesson so I didn´t know what to expect and I had never seen Kobborg before, but he was absolutely fabulous and it seemed that the Queen, who attended the gala, also was exited with the performance. If you missed it you have another chance to see it next week. I am gonna watch my recording of it again tonight.
  10. If you like "The Lesson" or if you are a fan of Johan Kobborg you can watch Danish Television DR1 this evening when they send a live transmission from the opera house. Flemming Flind has himself instructed Kobborg and Gudrun Bojesen in this special performance of "The Lesson"
  11. The Fairy Doll from 1927. And one that I haven't seen before, Anna Pavlova in The Dying Swan from 1907
  12. I loved her too and hope that she like another Georgian junior skating champion Nina Ananiashvili take the decision to give up skating for ballet.
  13. There really is a video Joseph, I belive it was filmed in 1988.
  14. Well it´s a ballet theatre Most of the women are en pointe, but don´t expect to much of classical dancing.
