Hello! I have a question for whoever knows the answer... it will be on the end of the year final at my ballet school. In what famous ballet does the virtuoso step brise vole (sorry I don't know how to do accent marks on my computer) appear? Thanks!! :confused:

Hi there! Brise vole, especially done consecutively, is bravura step that appears in many ballets, but is this a question that your teacher was hoping you'd research an answer to? I wouldn't want to give away an answer if she or he was hoping you'd watch some videos to find out which ballet is famous for the step. ;)

Hint...The initials of the ballet are SB. And the color of the costume worn is BLUE! Was it okay to give away that much, mehunt? Hope I'm not in trouble!

This is probably not the ballet the teacher's looking for, but it's also famously quoted in B's TPDD. As many people know, B thought SB was the apotheosis of classical ballet.
