i just watched a documentary made in 1977 about the Vaganova Choreographic Institute also known as the Kirov School in St. Petersburg. It is a wonderful movie. I continue to be amazed by classical ballet and by the children who live this life. it makes me sad that such training, even close, is not available here in Chicago. Particulary through the school that i spent the past 8 years devoting my life to. Maybe spoiled american children cannot understand what it is like to focus on one thing at a time and stop multitasking long enough to appreciate something greater they they are.
i am a horrible dancer. i know this. i just want a chance to do it and say that i worked hard and i tried.
i reccommend this film to anyone even remotely interested in ballet.
