thankyou very much for your reply Dean. Appreciated as always. aah a very interesting note that you made re: breathing with the music and meshing with it. It is really is something that can be learnt but something that must come from within (only my thoughts of course). With interest, I once had a ballroom class with a professional dancer who made the comment that males will listen to the music differently to that of females. A very thought provoking statement indeed! I can very well understand that comment and truly does make sense. Any guesses why? Anyway was just wondering what your opinion of this statement would be in relation to ballet in particular pas de deux? I would love to hear everyone's comments on this - Just for fun
PS. Will let you know what the statement actually was. Hint: relates to beat and pulse, higher notes and musicality......
Thankyou also little tutu for your post. Excellent. Light and shade added to the dance makes it not only more interesting visually to the audience but makes it much more alive for the performer.
citibob...brilliant post as always!
