Ballet Question Game

568 posts in this topic

xoxo, although the title just says Ballet Question Game, if you read back through it you fill find that the questions are all about history of ballet! Other kinds of questions go on other forums, such as the Buddy Board for questions like the one you asked, above. You are not yet eligible for the Buddy Board, but when you have been here long enough, and have enough posts, you will see your member status change from New Member to Member. At that time, you may request admittance to the Buddy Board. :)

Ms Leigh, perhaps the title should be edited to say "Ballet History Question Game"?

Or, new posters can take a few minutes to read!!!!!! :thumbsup: It's a good habit to get into, because as a dancer, you will be placed into situations where "getting your sea legs" is an important thing. Before wading into water, take a moment to check the depth. :thumbsup:

Whoa, Wait a ,minute, Blackswan. The main character is not necessarily the title character. The main character in The Little Hump-Backed Horse is Ivanushka. The show is about what happens to him. The principal female characters are both (The Little Horse and the Tsar-Maiden) both kind of flat characters. The show spends a lot of time developing his character and backstory, while the ballerina parts, even though they get the variations, are just kind of mobile manikins.
