Hello! Please excuse my english - it is not my native language. I don't know anything about ballet, but the other day I stumbled across some videos on youtube and somehow I got hooked. Especially this performance by Baryshnikov of the prince's variation in Sleeping Beauty. (I hope it is okay to post the video here...) Now I want to know what the steps are called and in which order he makes them... I googled a list of ballet steps and I think I recognize some, but I want to be sure. Could someone perhaps please help me? I'm rather curious about this performance. I also hope this was the right place/forum to post this question.
Hello! Thanks for accepting me to this forum. ☺️ I am not a ballet-dancer and don't have any experience(except basic stuff regarding some performances and styles) however I'm writing a book where the protagonist is a passionate ballet dancer and the reason I signed in this forum is the fact that I'm doing some research on ballet in order to make what's in the book seem realistic. I'd like to know beforehand whether my questions can be answered or if this is strictly a forum for ballet-dancers. (Note: Even if ballet is important in the story, it's barely involved in the main plotline but only in the past of the character and some goals he/she had made. I also don't want to spoil what happens so I might not answer some kind of questions. Most of them are related to ballet styles and ballet education, not about individual performance or technique.)
