Guest PrinceSiegfried84 Posted January 4, 2006 Report Share Posted January 4, 2006 Hi guys, I am a 21 pre professional ballet dancer. I graduate at English National Ballet School in London last summer. Since then I have danced quite a lot, only recently I am the lead role in a small production for my hometown theatre as the painter Degas in "Marie, Degas' petite dancer". It's quite a hard character to play, being very dark, ambigous, sad and full of insight depth. I am still fighting with some technical details, but in the last days I came to the conclusion that a good percentage of what I get to do onstage or during a rehearsal depends very much on the emotional load I put in it. I mean, as a male dancer I need to put a different energy in my steps, especially when it comes to big jumps or tours en l'air where you MUST put a certain amount of ,let's say, "masculine rage", in order to give them the right form. Apart from the deepening of plies before jumps, and the development of a "dancing wide" sensation, does anybody have any other suggestion to achieve an even more mature, noble and masculine way of dancing? I am so upset that most of the times I f*** up the end or the middle part of an otherwise good combination because I start feeling like "I'm not gonna get it", and let the emotional load take over me. Best to everybody Quote Link to comment
