O ballet e seus rituais...

Preparar as sapatilhas de ponta é um deles. As vezes eu penso “porque isso não vem pronto?”, confesso tb que colocava minha mãe para fazer o ritual para mim, mas hoje, se eu puder indicar ou dar algum tipo de conselho, escutem a tia Dry e preparem suas próprias sapatilhas 🌸

Isso vai te aproximar delas. Vai fazer com que você aumente a sua conexão com elas, no melhor estilo “Quem ama cuida” ♥️Eu não sei fazer direito, costuro mal, mas o processo me deixa mais perto delas, um aprendizado, sem dúvidas.O ballet está nas pequenas coisas também. Ele não está apenas nas aulas, ensaios e apresentações ele está nos seus gestos e atitudes. Preparar a ponta, fazer seu coque, se aquecer...Estilo de vida: bailarina 🎀Você prepara suas sapatilhas?

Sorry for the clickbait title lmao I couldn't help myself. But a while ago I posted about how my friend had bought a turning board for us, and how I was wary about it. Anyways while I still can't even do a single turn by myself on the turning board, it really helped us practice partnered turning, specifically the hand coordination.

For reference, me and friend are both girls just trying to do some easy partnering things for little informal shows we do at a nursing home.

I was doing the "girl" part, and my friend was doing the "boy" part, but I am much more experienced at partnering than her.

Basically what we did was have me stand already in retiré (on flat obviously) on the turn board so she could just paddle me around without fear of me falling.

I’m looking for a good ballet/barre series for beginners. Havent done any ballet except for Ballet 101 & 102 waaaay back in college. Please keep in mind, I’m 65! Looking for increased strength, flexibility, and balance, but at a slower pace. There are SO MANY videos that I don’t even know where to start 😬 Having the back of a chair for a barre works for me! Thank you 🙏🏼

Royal Ballet Beauty Mixed Programme review – in the theatre, I would have been sobbing

Available onlineMarianela Nuñez’s irresistible Aurora, a Wayne McGregor pas de deux and one soloist’s swansong are highlights of the Royal’s 90th anniversary show

As dance shakes out its post-lockdown limbs, one thing is clear: the online sharing of performance is here to stay. It gives companies an opportunity to reach a much wider public than could cram into the theatre on any given night – and offers those who can’t see something live an opportunity to be part of the experience in a different way.

When I was forced to miss the Royal Ballet’s recent Beauty Mixed Programme at the Royal Opera House, it felt like a real boon to be able to catch up digitally with a programme that celebrates the company’s 90th anniversary with a bill of variable quality and interest, but absolute commitment to its founder Ninette de Valois’s mantra of “adventurous traditionalism”.

The vivid simplicity of Beatriz Stix-Brunell's movement showed what a communicative presence we are losing

The Royal Ballet’s Beauty Mixed Programme is available online until 8 August

‘You’re never comfortable as a dancer’: brilliant ballerina Beatriz Stix-Brunell’s next step

The Royal Ballet star, who is swapping the Covent Garden stage for Stanford University, talks about what she will and won’t miss most about dancing

You hear of dancers’ careers being ended by injury, or of them retiring with a heavy heart in their 30s or 40s. But it’s almost unheard of for a ballet dancer to walk away from the stage when they’re still on the up. That’s what Beatriz Stix-Brunell is doing. After 11 years at the Royal Ballet, the 28-year-old American is taking up a place at Stanford University in California. She has impressed in leading roles from Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to Jacqueline du Pré in The Cellist (for which she was nominated for a National Dance award), and might have been promoted to principal. So why leave now?

“I always knew I wanted to go back to school at some point,” she says. “Ballet is so intense, you have to have tunnel vision and it does become a bubble. You give so much of yourself and you’re fine making those sacrifices because you love it so much, but there are so many parts of me that I haven’t discovered yet. It feels like a good time to step into this new chapter.”

Beatriz Stix-Brunell makes her final appearance in the Beauty Mixed Programme at the Royal Opera House, London, on 11 July.

Royal Ballet: Beauty Mixed Programme review – rose petals and a lust for water

Royal Opera House, LondonA wild variety of pas de deux fuel this mixed bill, from kitschy Strauss to a duet with a table, plus part of Sleeping Beauty

Much as happens with real-life weddings, thanks to Covid, the guest list at Princess Aurora’s nuptials has shrunk. A bubble of dancers went into self isolation in the run-up to the Royal Ballet’s latest opening, meaning a hasty reorganisation for some of this mixed bill.Act three of Sleeping Beauty (performed as a standalone finale, making this a long evening), had a reduced cast but it didn’t dent the star billing, ever-perfect Marianela Nuñez and Vadim Muntagirov, nor Meaghan Grace Hinkis’s noteworthy Princess Florine: animated, technical, musical. Meanwhile, the opener, Anemoi, was reworked at the last minute by Valentino Zucchetti. Expanded from his lockdown piece Scherzo, made for the company’s corps de ballet, the new title refers to the wind gods of Greek myth, and there is an almost visible breeze brushing through the deftly written choreography. Zucchetti favours modest, elegant geometry over the hyper-extended shapes of contemporary ballet and there are some lovely moments where your eyes alight on a particular tableau before everything moves off again.

Royal Ballet: Beauty Mixed Programme is at Royal Opera House, London, until 11 July.

The week in dance: Balanchine and Robbins; British Ballet Charity Gala; Dangerous Liaisons – review

Royal Opera House; Royal Albert Hall; Sadler’s Wells, LondonVadim Muntagirov excelled in a celebration of American ballet while Darcey Bussell staged an impressive showcase of UK talent

The first time I saw Vadim Muntagirov dance was in 2010, not long after he had joined English National Ballet from the Royal Ballet upper school. He was Siegfried in Derek Deane’s in-the-round version of Swan Lake at the Royal Albert Hall and despite competition from 60 swans, this slim, slightly gawky young man was by far the most emotionally engaging and interesting thing about the evening.

Since then, like many dance-lovers, I’ve tracked his progress, watching him as he moved from ENB to the Royal Ballet and grew into one of the most technically assured and classically noble dancers working today. His performances are always thrilling, intelligent and committed, but even so, seeing him in Balanchine’s Apollo represented a new apotheosis.

Choreographer Jerome Robbins makes explicit the sense of wonder that dance can conjure

Royal Ballet: Balanchine and Robbins review – Vadim Muntagirov’s Apollo is simply divine

Royal Opera House, LondonThe Russian always had technique, now he’s got belief in this terrific all-American programme also taking in work from the 1960s set to Tchaikovsky and Chopin compositions

George Balanchine’s Apollo is one of the great male roles in ballet. When Balanchine taught it he was apparently more specific than in any other ballet, yet there are still so many ways to play the young god coming of age. (One of the great interpreters, Jacques d’Amboise, died recently but you can see his 1960 version online.)For Vadim Muntagirov, donning the deity’s white tights to open this all-American programme, Apollo appears troubled by the weight of expectation on his shoulders, a little like Swan Lake’s Prince Siegfried. There’s subtle wariness, denial and resistance but with each breath and each leap into a deep lunge, he’s growing towards his destiny. Muntagirov seems to have gone through a transformation of his own in the last year, appearing a more mature, more layered dancer, with perhaps more belief in his authority over the stage. His godly technique was never in doubt, his divine sense of line – to put it unromantically, the man’s proprioception must be off the scale.Apollo is schooled by the muses, the bright presence of Mayara Magri’s Polyhymnia, and the more inscrutable Calliope (Anna Rose O’Sullivan) and Terpsichore (Yasmine Nagdhi, as assured as ever), embodying the precision and restraint of the ballet’s choreography. The ballet, from 1928, is nearly a century old and yet still delights in its invention and idiosyncrasy. It’s full of imagery: an eagle, a chariot, Apollo playing his lute with a full swinging circle of his arm like a very refined rock god. Alongside Stravinsky’s magnificent score, it all equals something approaching the sublime.

At the Royal Opera House, London, until 13 June. Available online from 11 June-11 July.
