Porque dia 29 de abril é Dia Internacional da Dança?

 

O Dia Internacional da Dança ou Dia Mundial da Dança foi instituído pelo CID (Comitê Internacional da Dança) da UNESCO (Organização das Nações Unidas para a Educação, Ciência e Cultura) no ano de 1982. Logo, se eu nasci em 1986 e comecei a ir para o ballet em 1990, hoje faz 26 anos que esse dia me acompanha, embora quando eu era pequena, eu não soubesse. Por isso que amo as Redes Sociais, ela permite que a gente saiba tanta coisa e essa data não pode mesmo passar batida.

Um dia importante como mais um momento de mobilização em torno deste assunto. Alguns dos objetivos desta comemoração é aumentar a atenção pela importância da dança entre o público geral, assim como incentivar governos de todo o mundo para fornecerem melhores políticas públicas voltadas à dança.

A UNESCO escolheu o 29 de abril por ser a data de nascimento do mestre francês Jean-Georges Noverre (1727-1810). Ele ultrapassou os princípios gerais que norteavam a dança do seu tempo para enfrentar problemas relativos à execução da obra. Sua proposta era atribuir expressividade a dança por meio da pantomima, a simplificação na execução dos passos e a sutileza nos movimentos. Noverre se destaca na história por ter escrito um conjunto de cartas sobre o balé de sua época, “Letters sur la Danse”.

Hi! Just as the title says really. I would love some ballet slippers, they are so pretty. I have always wanted to be a ballerina and to practice ballet, however I am physically disabled (I have cerebral palsy) and have never been accepted into any studios as a result. Now as an adult, I haven’t found a studio to suit my needs either.

I understand that dancing, or attempting to dance in pointe shoes is dangerous if you have not been trained and are ready to do so.

Today I had my first session of Botox in my lower leg (this is relevant I promise) - if it works it means that i could have more movement in my legs, and perhaps be accepted into classes. I also have to have physiotherapy to make sure my leg is in the best condition possible.

So I was thinking. I could get some soft ballet slippers, just for fun, and practice in them, and maybe even if I practice ballet it will help my leg get better too?

Thank you for reading!

I’ve been going to a different studio lately and moved up to intermediate classes and there’s this one student there that kind of bothers me, but I don’t know if it’s just a normal thing at intermediate and higher levels. This student will go to the class and just do their own combinations, not even really bothering to follow what the teacher demonstrated. It’s not like one of those things where the teacher does a slow 3 tendus and a plie while the student does 2 slow and 3 fast. It’s more like the student moving ahead to degages on their own while the teacher is still giving the second tendu combination.

It doesn’t bother me as much at barre because whatever, I know the combination, I’m not copying, but it’s infuriating in center because they get in the way since they aren’t moving in the same general direction as everyone else. It’s not during breaks/in between combinations while the teacher is demonstrating the next one, it’s while the music is going, everyone is doing the combination together, and this person decided to throw it out the window completely and do something that doesn’t even remotely resemble what everyone else is doing. I’m talking like I’m doing the tombe pas de bouree pirouette like the teacher demonstrates, and then end up not being able to do the pas de bouree or having to change my direction last minute because they did a waltz step right into what would have been my path of travel.

It feels almost like they’re just paying the regular class rate for studio time, instead of getting their own studio time to do whatever they want. The teacher never says anything and no one else in the class complains either, so part of me thinks that maybe I’m just overreacting and this is something normal.

I have my first ballet exam on Sunday and I'm extremely nervous! I've only been doing ballet for 5 months and I think I'm doing well but I'm struggling with a few things (especially remember my dance). We all have to perform it alone and were told that if we forget it to just continue dancing. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and can't improvise so I don't know what I'll do if I forget it. On the topic of Improvising, I have to improvise in my exam too. Please just give me any advice on how to do any of this or how to stay calm before the exam

New English Ballet Theatre review – highs and lows in a full and varied programme

Linbury theatre, LondonA hardworking young company showcase a range of dance styles to music including classical, rock and contemporary

The Royal Ballet’s Next Generation festival is a platform for youth and early career dance artists, and a natural home for New English Ballet Theatre, founded in 2010 to nurture young classical dancers, frequently through newly commissioned choreography. Their very full programme – six works, plus backstage film interviews – gives the stage to female choreographers. Ruth Brill’s Domino opens the evening, its chic tunics in Mondrian patterns and sharp Ryuichi Sakamoto score imparting a stylish modernist ambience; but both dance and dancers seem awkwardly self-conscious among the arch angles of the jigsawing choreography.Daniela Cardim’s Nocturne, a more conventional lyric-romantic male-female duet, fits its performers more fluently as they swoop, slide and soar to the moonlit turbulence of Chopin’s piano music. But it is Morgann Runacre-Temple’sRosamunde that first gives both company and audience something to really chew on. For sound, Tom Lane sets a Schubert string quartet and his own electronic score into a shifty interplay where neither quite gains the upper hand. Hands are choreographically prominent too, placed upon elbows, thighs, flanks, or unfolding into the air – sometimes clasps, sometimes tendrils. Groups cluster, unfurl and recompose in formations that feel simultaneously mechanical, botanical and human, the dancers at once separate individuals and parts of a single composite creature.Georgie Rose’s Solace shows plenty of promise, particularly in its opening section, a fleet, cross-cutting male trio set to Ruby Fulton’s rhythmic replays of the words “I’m sorry/not sorry”. A line of more melting, fluid female duets opens the door to more familiar neoclassical partnering and groupwork, backed by Roger Goula’s melancholic string score – but the work, though still assured, loses some of its initial focus.Choreographed by Kristen McNally, I Can’t Dance is an oddly inhibited film to an MOR rock song by Genesis. Alternately lit and silhouetted, a cluster of hippily dressed dancers bop and sway a bit, looking slightly groovy. Excerpts from Jenna Lee’s classy Four Seasons, to Max Richter’srecomposition of Vivaldi, close the evening more confidently, giving the dancers both ample rein to shine individually as well as a secure choreographic framework to support them as a group – a fitting way to showcase the hardworking young company in this packed and very mixed programme.• At Cheltenham music festival on 10 July; the Grange, Hampshire, on 13-14 July; and Crescent theatre, Birmingham, 3-4 August.

Queen’s platinum jubilee concert 2022: the Platinum Party at the Palace – as it happened

One of the showpiece events for the platinum jubilee is a concert with Queen, Diana Ross, Elton John and more

Who’s playing at the Party at the Palace?Communities come together for jubilee street partiesHow to survive the jubilee weekend – for republicans

I hope you’re watching this on TV, by the way, because Kirsty Young is literally wearing a pearl knuckleduster. It’s quite the accessory - simultaneously sending the message that a) this is a respectful, prestigious event and b) Kirsty Young will eff you the hell up.

How does the BBC plan to fill this half-hour void? So far, with a montage of the Queen looking benignly indifferent at various celebrities. Frank Sinatra, Judi Dench, Lady Gaga, Dustin Hoffman, Craig David. The Queen has met all of them and, if this montage is any indication, recognised none of them.

Like Water for Chocolate review – Christopher Wheeldon’s delectable take on a magic-realist love story

Royal Opera House, LondonWheeldon choreographs Mexican novelist Laura Esquivel’s 1989 tale of food and forbidden passions into a fulfilling ballet full of buoyant movement and visually arresting coups de theatre

Not all choreographers are good directors, but Christopher Wheeldon is. Even when dealing with a tricky text such as Laura Esquivel’s magical realist novel Like Water for Chocolate, his is a steady hand. His choreography seems in a telepathic relationship with the melody and mystery of Joby Talbot’s score, while Bob Crowley’s designs, inspired by Mexican architect Luis Barragán, give a sense of heat and isolation, and some visually arresting coups de theatre.

In brief, it’s the story of Tita (Francesca Hayward) and Pedro(Marcelino Sambé), who are deeply in love but forbidden to marry – Tita must care for her demanding mother (a fierce Laura Morera, especially when she returns as a ghost). Pedro marries Tita’s sister, as his best chance to stay close to his true love, but that motive is one example of a detail, an emotional beat, that could be missed by viewers who haven’t read Esquivel’s book or seen the film. This show rewards a little research.

Like Water for Chocolate is at the Royal Opera House, London, until 17 June.

Scènes de ballet/ A Month in the Country/ Rhapsody review – an outstanding Ashton triple bill

Royal Opera House, LondonIn a showcase of works from across their founding choreographer’s career, the Royal Ballet prove their mastery of his technical and dramatic complexity

Mikhail Baryshnikov once told me that when he was making Rhapsody with Frederick Ashton, the choreographer used to walk into rehearsals with the Rachmaninov score turned down to mark how far they had got. In her programme essay, Jann Parry notes that he wandered into the creation of Scènes de Ballet with a book of advanced geometry under his arm, transforming theorems into floor patterns. Presumably, he arrived to make A Month in the Country, based on Turgenev, with a dog-eared copy of the play.

Extreme musicality, a refined sense of balletic symmetry and an understanding of narrative are all qualities that define the Royal Ballet’s founding choreographer, and they were all on display in this outstanding triple bill.
