It's seems that Bournonville is more closed of the mime and the theater, the dance moments are less numerous than in Petipa's ballets. Male dancer doesn't have the same style of variations. In a documentary narrated by Peter Schauffuss and called "Dancer", he said that the dancers must have "ballon" and all the jumps are near the high because the stage was small, they don't have manege of jumps, but they dance from left to right or to right to left. For the girls it's not variation with leg extension, it's also little jumps, it's especially a feet work. But my english is poor to explain completely the difference
In VHS existed Napoli and his Sylphide, I know that in the past year they broadcast several full lenght ballet as Kermesse at Bruges, Fairy Tale (two broadcasted version exist, one in the older presentation and one in the sets and dress designed by the Queen Margarethe), Far from Denmark, Life of Amager Guards. For me the best one is Napoli, I love also his Sylphid.
It seems that Denmark is proud of his past and desserves it with love
, what it's not the case in all the other countries, where they lost their tradition
