Online Videos: ballets online

Recommended Posts

anyone know where i could find a ballet online? something that would play in windows media player or something like that. doesn't really matter what ballet, i would like swan lake, the nutcracker, carnival of animals, paquita, or la bayadere mostly but anything will do. it is for a school presentation and i wanted to show parts of a ballet for it but i can't bring in a video or anything because it's a powerpoint presentation type thing.

Aww!! I was in the Bossov Ballet Theater 2003 "Le Corsaire" performance! It's such a memory! OH MY GOOOOOSH!!! The Greta video for the Sleeping Beauty Pas almost made me cry it is so beautiful!!

I don't know about the little swans, but if you run a google search for "prix de laussanne" (I hope I spelled that right?) you can see archives of ENTIRE competition finals... which is terrific if you want to watch a series of teenagers dancing Kitri from Don Q....

Alas, the Corsaire dancer with the fantastic rivoltade has vanished from videobalet.net


Does anyone know who it was? He had the initials DM and the video was called: DM_COR_2



At the moment there are a bunch of Ekaterina Maximova clips. Now there's a study in what has changed over the years! Check out the Spartacus and Walpurgis Nacht clips.... there's a consciousness of what dancing is that goes beyond the consciousness of perfect line that often passes for principal dancing these days. I'm ready to give up a little in visual form to get back that playful energy that she had.

Youtube.com has LOTS of ballet videos you can watch online. Just type in the word "ballet" or the name of a ballet or the name of a dancer.


The famous "Polina" music video is on there as well as a couple of others of her.
