Ballet videos on the web

Okay, this has my vote for the best place to check out ballet videos on the web. I could easily spend hours here. :D Go to:




And type "ballet" in the search box. You'll get about 20,000 video clips from different ballets. Pretty cool.

I've also been (time)sucked into this in the past few weeks. My favorite clips so far are the Sizova Corsaire/Dryad Queen variation and the Maximova Giselle and Kitri. Of course there are an even greater number of wonderful clips of contemporary dancers, as in the Cojocaru/Kobborg Cinderella, but I like finding rarities. There is even Anna Pavlova's Dying Swan.


The only thing I don't enjoy is reading some of the comments from young students. Most appreciative or negative comments seem to center on a dancer's physical facility. I understand their attitude and once shared it, but still find it demoralizing to focus so much on the body, as if a dancer were a beautiful lump of clay with no animating spark of personality or soul.
