Don Q pas and the fan


Recommended Posts

I hope this is the right place for this question.

Looking at a youtube video of Alina Cojocaru makes me wonder who was the first woman to use the fan during the fouettes in the coda. Lorena Feijoo at SF Ballet does it too as well as Diana Vishneva.

Does anyone know with whom this originated?

That beautiful footage of Slavenska from the Ballet Russes movie dancing the end of the variation-(which by doing those backward sautees on pointe shows a totally different choreography from whatever Gorsky/Petipa is and has been generally used as the "standard")-finishes with her THROWING THE FAN ON THE FLOOR ! :)
