O Ballet Online e o adágio

Segunda-feira, 13 de abril de 2021, aula de ballet, on-line, hora do adagio. Eu fechei minha câmera. Não seria a primeira vez que eu faria o adágio de câmera fechada. Motivo? Dignidade rsrsrsrs eu me sinto muito mal, pq me sinto muito torta.

.Respirei fundo.Vi que todas as câmeras estariam abertas, menos a minha.Tomei coragem e abri minha câmera.Fiz meus pequenos developpés de câmera aberta. O rond não cabe aqui. O attitude não quero nem ver haha mas abri em respeito a mim, ao professor, aos meus colegas e ao ballet..Não fiquei confortável não. Parecia que não acaba nunca e nem era tão grande como costumam ser os adágios.Parece uma bobagem, mas pra mim não é 😅 quis dividir isso com vocês
Encontrei uma sapatilha de ponta na feira de antiguidades

Encontrei essa sapatilha de ponta numa feira de antiguidades em São Paulo. Está escrito “Mappin”, que eh o nome de uma loja de departamentos que ficava em frente ao @theatromunicipal de São Paulo antigamente.

Não encontrei ninguém para nós falar  porque era do Mappin 😅🤷🏻‍♀️ Mas achei uma pessoa que usou uma igual:"Que relíquia!! Cursei me formei na Escola de Bailados época Mappin, usei sapatilhas de pelica compradas nas lojas: "Ballet do Centro" da mãe da Sra. Marika Gidali. Guarde com respeito e carinho!👏👏❤️" @rosairiscorraEla é bem diferente de uma ponta atual. A textura, a forma, as fitas que são cadarços rs não tenho coragem de “abrir” e desmontar para ver como é por dentro.Infelizmente não cabe no meu pé, apesar de estar escrito 38 e eu calçar 36 (não é de hoje que estes tamanhos são malucos 😅)No vídeo eu mostro melhor 😉
Sapatilha de ponta assinada pela Ana Botafogo

A intimidade dos Professores de Ballet

Estava pensando outro dia como um professor de ballet fica íntimo da gente. Tem acesso aos nossos sentimentos, porque o nosso corpo fala e uma aula de ballet fala muito sobre nós.

ConfiançaEntregaTroca de energiasTalvez por isso gostamos de algumas aulas e outras não. Talvez não seja apenas pela aula, mas também pela conexão com aquela pessoa que está ali te observando e compartilhando.Ele sabe se estamos confortáveis ou não; envergonhados ou não; cansados ou não.
Ballet - Diagramas de Orientação de Espaço { Direções do Palco ou Sala }
As direções do palco ou sala de aula dizem respeito ao posicionamento do bailarino em relação ao espaço. Essas direções tem numerações sequenciais que podem seguir  diagramas de orientação diferentes de marcação de numeração dos cantos ou pontos, de acordo com a metodologia. O mais comum, geralmente utilizado na maioria das escolas, é o Diagrama russo, de Agrippina Vaganova. Nele, a partir do ponto 1, até o 8, em sentido horário, os centros receberão numerações ímpares e as diagonais numerações pares.As divisões são essenciais para atender as necessidades de localização e colocação dos bailarinos para executar os movimentos. Conhecer os diagramas ajuda no senso das direções para as quais o corpo vira.Direções do Palco ou Sala Agrippina VaganovaFrente (espelho ou público): número 1Diagonal da direita da frente: número 2Lateral direita: número 3Diagonal da direita dos fundos: número 4Fundos: número 5Diagonal da esquerda dos fundos: número 6Lateral esquerda: número 7Diagonal da esquerda da frente: número 8Na escola italiana, Enrico Cecchetti desenvolveu seu Diagrama numerando os cantos das diagonais de 1 a 4 e os centros de 5 a 8, também considerando o sentido anti horário.Direções do Palco ou Sala Erico Cecchetti Frente (espelho ou público): número 5Diagonal da direita da frente: número 1Lateral direita: número 8Diagonal da direita dos fundos: número 4Fundos: número 7Diagonal da esquerda dos fundos: número 3Lateral esquerda: número 6Diagonal da esquerda da frente: número 2E o da Royal?

A question we get asked all the time, "Do I have a good body to pursue ballet?" This is usually followed by, "What makes the body good?" We have talked about this in the magazine and on the blog, but today I wanted to take the time and focus on different types of bodies in ballet, how they work inside of this crazy world, and some of the challenges that a body type will face.

Howdy folks. Just wanted to say a few words from a person who’s never done ballet but has always adored it. You guys, for those who dance, bring that thrill in my life that I’ve always wanted. My dream was to always be a ballet dancer but I never got to accomplish that dream. I love watching performances and I can truly see the passion ballet dancers have on stage. I can go all day listening to classical music used in performances and can envision myself dancing, moving my arms gracefully and other movements. Of course, no one ever talks about the struggles you guys face and the harsh criticism that can bruise you. I thank you all for always bringing a smile to my face and note that your work will never go unnoticed. Keep on dancing and doing what makes you happy and cheering us with your eloquence and passion.

Liam Scarlett obituary
Dynamic choreographer whose meteoric rise at the Royal Ballet was halted in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations

In ballet, choreographic voices typically develop slowly, often following a dancing career. Not so with Liam Scarlett, whose rise was prodigious. At 24 his first Royal Ballet success, Asphodel Meadows, propelled him to international attention. “I’m trying to be the youngest choreographer to do everything,” he said in a 2012 interview, “before it runs out and I’m just – normal.”

He has died aged 35 of undisclosed causes, following the Royal Danish Ballet’s announcement that it had cancelled plans to stage his work on grounds of offensive behaviour. In August 2019 he was suspended by the Royal Ballet following allegations of sexual misconduct with his students, though without any specific circumstances being disclosed, and in March last year the company said that it would no longer work with him.

Liam Scarlett: the British choreographer who has died aged 35

Profile: The former Royal Ballet artist in residence had a prolific career in British dance and beyond

For a decade Liam Scarlett, who has died aged 35, was a major figure in British and international ballet, in demand by companies around the world. He created a full-length Frankenstein production for the Royal Ballet and was given the great responsibility of mounting its new version of Swan Lake. After allegations of sexual misconduct at the Royal Ballet and Royal Ballet School, the company severed ties with him; an independent investigation found there were “no matters to pursue” in relation to students.

Patter of tiny feet: dancers on leaping into motherhood

Juggling babies and a job is always difficult – what are the particular pressures for performers and how is the industry taking steps to improve?

Followers of Royal Ballet principal Lauren Cuthbertson cheer ardently for her Juliet, Manon and Sugar Plum Fairy, but are in raptures about her latest role, as mum to baby Peggy, born in December and already the toast of Instagram. Cuthbertson is one of a flurry of dancers at the Royal who are about to give or have recently given birth, in a serendipitously timed lockdown baby boom.

It’s a long way from the early days of the company, when founder Ninette de Valois set the tone. “‘You’re pregnant darling, goodbye!’ That’s how it was,” says Jeanetta Laurence, a dancer in its touring company in the 1960s and 70s. Even now, she says: “It’s hard to think of another industry where having a baby is so intrusive to the work. I’m in awe and wonder at how they manage it.”

It makes me want to say more, speak more clearly, because time is precious

Film: Mark Kermode’s 10 best of 2020The Observer critics’ review of 2020 in full

1. RevisorSadler’s Wells, London, March; broadcast on BBC Four in May; available on iPlayerAn astonishing assertion from Crystal Pite and her Kidd Pivot company of the interpretative power of dance; a sinuous version of Gogol that combined lip-syncing to a text and visceral movement that articulated every word. Riveting.

Strictly Speaking: Week 6

A rather mediocre performance week, with some improvement in scoring, and alas still some glaring biases. However, poor Clara Amfo really doomed herself with an error-strewn jive that was actually marked quite kindly, yet cemented her place in the dance-off. Though I still think she got a raw deal overall this series, we never really […]
