Newish to Ballet Appreciation

Recommended Posts

I'm very new to my love of ballet.  I was very ill in Spring of last year and trying to keep my mind occupied, and started watching various ballets on-line.
My favorite ballet so far is Manon.  I find I'm partial to classical style, but there are some more modern type choreography that appeals to me as well.  
I enjoy many dancers' skill and expression, so I don't think I'm focused on any one dancer as a "fan."  I do follow Kathryn Morgan's videos, and have incorporated some of her tips to help me with physical issues even though I am, have never been, nor will ever be a dancer.  Not at my age!  LOL

Happy Holidays to all the readers and Admins and thanks for making this resource available and informative.

We hope you're recovering and glad that you've found ballet.  We have a Ballet Videos forum, and while links to videos can disappear, we hope you'll find videos that you haven't seen, and that you'll post if you see something you like.

You might want to check here as well -- BA ran a little conversation about the 1969 video of Frederick Ashton's Cinderella, and there's quite a bit of good information in the thread
