tantalus Posted November 21, 2008 Report Share Posted November 21, 2008 I was disappointed with the "Born to Be Wild" DVD. I didn't seen much that was really inspiring. I liked some of Malakhov's jumps best BUT I couldn't discern their height from the way the film was edited & cropped. I would like to dance the pirate's slave in "La Corsaire" as Angel Corella did it. I was hoping to learn from the DVD how those three trained. Baryshnikov said on a DVD about him that there were tricks to jumping so high BUT he wouldn't describe them, claiming that too many dancers would look good IF they knew. Also, he recently told Charlie Rose that the cubans had the best male ballet training in the world right now, BUT he couldn't articulate it very well (limited english, I presume). (Any suggestions re: how I can get male ballet tips?) I've read about some specials & some series about ballet & about men's ballet training on british TV but have been UNable to find them. One was "Ballet Boys." (Anyone know where I can find them?) Quote Link to comment
