Guest Retiredancer Posted March 9, 2005 Report Share Posted March 9, 2005 email@example.com Hi Folks! I did study ballet several years ago but needed to stop because of illness and never re-started it. But I continue to be a Ballet lover or Balletomane if you wish so. A big challenge is dancing classical roles en pointe. A few of them are long roles and all of them are very demanding on technique which shall however not take away the artistry of a dancer. So I would like to hear from you which, in your oppinion is the most demanding classical role to be danced en pointes and why. Ballet is an art, not a sport, however am sure that all of you dancers agree that it demands a high skill level, a sporty body structure, a lot of training and tears to finally get the so deserved applaus and smiles. And as harder the role, as better that role is danced, as more gratefull it is for a ballerina to receive the rercognition of the public. Lot of people tend to criticize without having an idea of the sweat and tears, of the pain and quantity of never ending rehearsals were necessary to get to the pointe. Quote Link to comment
