Of course, I would have to select myself (Marius Petipa), sidekick Lev Ivanov, music genius Pyotr Tchaikovsky, along with August Bournonville and Jules Perot. Can you top this list?<P>------------------<BR>

well off the top of my head,..... Image<BR>1. marius petipa<BR>need i say more?<BR>2. paul h. hazard <BR>Paul H. Hazard and his wife, European dancers and members of the Paris Opera, came to America and settled in Philadelphia. They opened the first school of ballet circa 1835. The Hazard school produced three American dancers that became famous in their own time. They were George Washington Smith, Mary Ann Lee and Augusta Maywood.<P>3. philippe taglioni<BR>4. marie taglioni<BR>5. auguste bournonville<BR>6. pierina legnani - Pierina Legnani was the first Odette/Odile and impressed the audience by performing 32 consecutive fouettés...<BR>7. salvatore vigano<BR>8. p. tchaikovsky<BR>this goes in the need i say more category...<BR>9. enrico cecchetti-As an adult he made his debut at La Scala in 1870. Enrico was taught by Giovanni Lepri, who had been a student of Carlo Blasis. Lepri made sure that the young Cecchetti knew the theories of Blasis, which put the emphasize on speed, pirouettes and fouetté. Enrico was a fine dancer and was in demand throughout Europe from 1870 until1890, when he was appointed dancer and second ballet master at the Imperial Theater in St. Petersburg. Two years later he began teaching at the school attached to the theater, and there developed his teaching methods based on the Italian School. <BR>10. Carlo Blasis<BR>(but i think i'm leaving something out)<BR>(and i know that's ten but it was difficult)<BR>(not in any particular order)<BR>(enough disclaimers?)

My list would have to include Prima Ballerina Assoluta Mathilde Kschessinskaya. <P> She brought the Russian ballet out from under the ascendency of the Italian dancers who had been imported to the Russian ballet companies as superior. She was the first true Russian Prima.

Pmeja - I am originally from Philadelphia. If I remember my history correctly, that city was not enamored of the performing arts in those days because of the Quaker history.<P>So to open a school of dance was quite an undertaking. <P>How about the list including Tchaikovsky?<p>[This message has been edited by Basheva (edited April 09, 2001).]
