Swan Lake Variation

Hello. I am going to be entering the Youth America Grand Prix competition next year and I am doing some research about what variation I would like to do. Actually, it's my teachers final decision, but would like to suggest some that I like.


Well, my question is that on the website www.yagp.org they say that some of the acceptable variations from Swan Lake are from the Pas de trois. I have the London Festival Ballet version of Swan Lake by Natalia Makarova and it does not have a Pas de trois in the first act. It does have a dance with two couples (pas de quatre?) and then they each do a variation.


The first girls variation has a lot of turns and the second one has a bunch of sissones and other jumps. I am interested in the second variation. Is that variation the same variation that may be in the pas de trois in other versions?


I hope that wasn't too confusing. Thanks for any help you can give me.
