KellyeS Posted January 4, 2009 Report Share Posted January 4, 2009 I am looking for suggestions for good variations for a young male dancer to learn. He is 11 and training, as most boys do, in a school that is dominated by females. The training is Vaganova based, with a teacher trained and certified in Russia in the method. He is going to be starting in the variations class this week. This class has been all female up until now. We have several performance opportunities for small benefits and other small performances in the next couple of months and would like for him to be able to participate in these. There is a girl starting the class this week as well who is about his size and age 12 (on pointe, but still a beginner). They have partnered as Clara & Fritz in a past Nutcracker and are well-suited in temperament and style with one another. It would be great if there was a classical pas de deux they could do that is short, simple and clean. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks. Quote Link to comment
