cheerful video for the day

“Lose yourself to Dance”

Starting at 1:48:10

A Feeling — that I hope to see returning to the Mariinsky stage as soon as it’s as safe and desirable as possible.

I'd forgotten about the 'Venus rising from the bathtub' scene. The music performance was interesting - I like the water sound effects.

The entire work was intended to be uplifting. This is also very noticeable in the beginning piece starting at 1:29:30.

I’m down there in the forth row center with the balding head.  😊

This is a quick article relating to the video clip of the London Swan ballerina posted here about two weeks ago.

“Social DistDancing: street ballet surprises make hearts leap”

“ The poise and serenity of the ballet pas de deux, especially, seems to delight the onlookers who whoop enthusiastically. “It’s amazing to hear people scream and cheer,” says Katsura. “You don’t get that at the Royal Opera House.” She’s been pleased to show ballet to passersby who might never see it otherwise. “We struggle in the bigger companies and theatres to get that younger generation in, but in the feedback I get, the people in their 20s tend to be the ones that love the ballet and they’re very surprised after watching it. Every time the ballet dancers come on it’s total silence, everyone puts down their phone and they just watch and it’s amazing to see that.” “

I'm not sure if I would call this cheerful, but I think it's lovely: a digital co-production between PNB and Works & Process by PNB Resident Choreographer Alejandro Cerrudo and Ana Lopez:

I like this video for at least two reasons besides just being enjoyable. Outdoor performances really seem like a good idea and dancers wearing face masks in close contact at this time is probably a very good idea as well.

This is a super fun compilation.  Not sure if anyone has posted it here yet or not.
