Ballets Russes


Recommended Posts

I just saw it this past weekend. It was wonderful. It was also really interesting to see how ballet was passed down to present day. I was awed to learn that some of my former teachers were connected to all that history. It made me feel like part of it all. We can trace the steps we learned to those very people on the screen. One of the dancers (franklin somebody) actually came to speak but I wasn't able to stay. Have any of you seen this yet? What did you think?

Freddy Franklin, who is one of the all time treasured dancers and GREAT people in the ballet world! I think that everyone of us fortunate enough to have worked with him truly adored him. He is very special indeed! :o

I haven't gotten to see it yet, although there was a big to-do with the company this weekend performing some old Ballet Russe favorites. Then there was a reception with our own Dorothy Lister and a screening of the film.


I hope to see it soon though.

Ooo.. it's playing next week at the university-- I will definitely try to see it. And somewhat related, last Friday, my dance studio hosted a book signing by Miss Joy Camden, who once performed with the Ballet Russes (at age 12!)
