Guest Lukayev Posted May 10, 2003 Report Share Posted May 10, 2003 The school at which I study is having a Spring Show in exactly a week, but there's still mucho things that need to be patched up, or re-choreographed b/c of music inavailability. Among the things that need work is this one pirouette that I must do in the Act III Finale of Coppelia. Seeing as it would be kind of lame for a just-married couple to have to dance around each other but never with their soulmate, the boy dancing Franz and I decided we should do something 'cool' for the final bar of music. And so, we decided on a supported pirouette, hopefully one that'll go on past the commonplace two revolutions. Now, it's not the bourrée-fourth-pirouette type; this one starts off looking like one of those finger pirouttes, except the girl's arms whoosh into a tight first(?) position and the boy's hands zip to the waist. The push-off with the left-hand one, you know? With a slight rond de jambe-looking thing to retiré. Anyway. I was wondering if Miss Leigh and Mr. Mel could share some of their expertise with a young 'un like mahself, seeing as they are seasoned professionals who have doubtlessly had to perform like 5 billion of these pirouettes themselves. Hohoho. I believe it would only be beneficial, and it would aid both me and my Franz-man as we'd get both turner and turnee viewpoints. Au revoir! Quote Link to comment
