Yes yes, after years of struggle, elbowing and brownnozing, our fearless warrior finally managed to arrange VIP tickets to the Nederlands Dans Theater performance coming 2nd of October here in Bratislava, and more importantly 😉 to the VIP party afterwards where her longtime hero Jyri Kylian and the dancers of NDTII (the young lot of the dance troupe ;-))!! Check!
They do have the time to practice of course…
Check it out: inmates of a Philipino Correctional Facility (CPDRC) doing their practice run some 2 weeks ago….
And their final performance last Wednesday for a real audience and Philipino media…
They also did Queen’s ‘Radio Gaga’ and several other songs. There are YouTube posts dating till as early as October last year of different performances by inmates of the same prison! They actually seem to like this dancing and synchronized marching, even when it seems very un-tough (i.e. like almost classical ballet type of movements in their Sister Act performance). Interesting…it does have a bit of positive vibe…Would this also work in other countries???
p.s. Thanks Perez H. for posting this video!
“Walk it out!” by Unk. Gwen Verdon an old leading lady from the 60s doing some Fosse (her husband) Funk dancing…I say goodbye to clowning and krumping, here comes Fossing…
For all ballet lovers, but also interesting for anybody because of the feisty, powerful and disarming 80-year old ballet dancers, most of them still teach!, and because it is not only a history of ballet but also a short history of the last century. About the diaspora, loves and lives of a group of intially very young ballet dancers to France, America and finally to many different parts of the world.
Check for a preview (1/12), enjoy!:
For number 2 to 12 of this documentary you can check YouTube, but better of course would be to buy the DVD at your local Music Store.
