Things are “opening up” and we may be back to class soon. What better time to think about turn out. Here’s a video from Holistic Ballet to watch. The audio isn’t great, but there is plenty of good info to digest. Hope to see you soon!
Today, online, the Opéra de Paris is streaming a tribute to choreographer Jerome Robbins. Have you ever watched West Side Story? He’s the man behind all that dancing. This is period stuff — from the mid 1900s (the era of rock n roll, etc.) — and so full of agility and fun, with great musicality. Click HERE to enjoy!

Don’t let boredom set in. There is plenty to keep you in shape while the studio is closed. Check out the YouTube channel of Claudia Dean, former soloist with the Royal Ballet. She has all kinds of technique hacks and conditioning exercises. Check out the perfect pirouettes video!
While schools and studio are closed, stay in tune with your love of dance. Ballettschule Theater Basel in Switzerland has some wonderful videos.
What better way to celebrate musical greatness than through dance.
This project was piloted in 2016 to provide contact and connection with elderly patients living in care residencies in Montreal. Many of them have lost their ability to communicate, but eyes brighten and connections are made through dance and music. Hats off to founder Ariane Boulet and the dancers and musicians who continue this beautiful undertaking.
A beautiful underwater performance by Julie Gautier. You can read more about the creation at this link.
