    Mathieu Ganio, Stephane Bullion

    Le combat des anges

    Why is it so perfect?!

    Well it was passionately danced by two of POB most beautiful male etoiles, so of course it will be perfect ;)

    This is one of my favourite excerpts in Petit’s Proust; Ganio as St. Loup is ethereal and full of conflicted feelings and Bullion as Morel is dark, intense and devious, the PDD is beautiful and the music is gorgeous and dramatic.

    Manuel Legris in Solo from La Sylphide

    O.M.G. That batterie..

  9. Love love love Myriam Ould-Braham’s Aurora, her light and precise footwork is to die for (her double rond de jambe en l’air at the beginning is fast yet articulate), her port de bras is so lovely - I particularly like the way her hands frame her head starting on 0.30. She really embodies a 16 y.o princess here.

    The gorgeous Mathilde Froustey and Davit Karaptyan in the Nutcracker

    I love this video! Mathilde has a lot of charm here really fitting for a Sugar Plum Fairy, her dancing is so elegant and musical and her phrasing is just gorgeous! The balance on 04.58 is superb, it’s secure and long (6 seconds?) without being showy. Beautiful footwork and beautiful arms, her Giselle will be wonderful.

  12. Budding Stars of the Paris Opera Ballet Trailer

    The 300-year old Paris Opera Ballet School is today a mythical place with an international reputation. In September 2011, it was home to 130 pupils, aged from 8 to 18, all driven by the same desire — to dance one day at the Paris Opera. Cameras were allowed in its revered halls to capture one year in the life of the ballet students who are training to form a group of dancers at the top of their profession.

  13. Concerto en Re - Choregraphy by Claude Bessy, danced by the 6th Division of the Paris Opera Ballet School

    In awe with the elegance and precision of the footwork. But anyway how the heck those kids do those beautiful with perfect placement arabesques at such a young age (6th Division age group is 11-13 y.o.)
