SwanPrincess has just posted a lovely video on Facebook from way back on an original Adeline Genee port des Bras exercise. It's really rather lovely and shows how truely beautiful a dancer can look without the excessive extensions that are aimed for these days with all the hip displacement that it causes! I don't know how to post the link to here at the moment but will ask SwanPrincess if she can!
