    Lynn Seymour

    Dance for the Camera: The Reunion "Artist film-maker, Jayne Parker’s collaboration with choreographer Ian Spink of Second Stride fame is an elegeic and deceptively simple film, shot in an empty theatre. Featuring Lynn Seymour, one of the greatest and most expressive ballerinas of the 60s and 70s, the film reunites her with Donald Macleary her ballet partner of 30 years earlier.

  5. The Earliest Filmed Full Length Ballet that Starred Andrei Batalov Diana Vishneva Don Quixote "As you will see, this video is primarily about Andrei Batalov. On July 21, 2011, almost 8 weeks ago, Batalov danced his last performance for the Mariinsky Ballet. He will coach Leonid Sarafanov at the Mikhailovsky Ballet.

  11. Sybil Shearer's evaluation of John Neumeier quoted in a review of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. "His praise continues, as the woman who discovered him (none other than the mystical dancer Sybil Shearer) reflects on the choreographer’s progression, ‘Yes, the phenomenon of John Neumeier is unique in the world of ballet.

He is simple; through his own integrity and insight, pointing a way to the futu

  13. Thank you Richka, that was so interesting. I was wondering if Neumeier come into the studio with his choreography pretty well worked out or if he developed his ideas in the studio? How did his way of working compare with other choreographers you have worked with?
  14. Leonid, did you know Helpmann? What do you think of the Salter biography?
  15. Here is Robert Helpmann's take on the topic.... When asked "Would the fashion for nudity extend to the dance?" Helpmann replied, "No. You see there are portions of the human anatomy which would keep swinging after the music had finished." page 213 Helpmann by Elizabeth Salter
