And while we're on the subject of dance...

Here's Sylvie Guillem in William Forsythe's 'In the middle, somewhat elevated", one of my favourite ballets. Those breath-taking extensions, the arch of her foot, the emphasis in her movement, everything reminds me of why I love ballet so much.

Enjoyable clip. I've never seen live ballet but would like to.

Well, you know the song...

Everyone is beautiful at the ballet.
Every prince has got to have his swan.
Yes,
Everyone is beautiful at the ballet.
(Chorus Line)

And these days there are even male swans (Matthew Bourne, if my memory serves me well).

Siegfried said...

Yes, a male ballet performance definitely appeals!

Matthew Bourne's Nutcracker is on, and Sylvie Guillem is coming to London with Push by Russell Oliphant at the London Coliseum. Lucky you.

I might try to catch the performances in the Hague and Brussels if I can find a babysitter.
