Let’s say “learned to fake knowing how to dance ballet so that, with the help of careful editing, it may look as if he is really doing it”. Just like in Angel’s Last Mission:love.
To learn ballet you need at least 10 years.
Oh I know, I just admire these actors that take that EXTRA mile and LEARN something new. I was going to re-join BALLET in high school. I’m only 5’1" but they told me I could do it/but the rehearsal and time it would have taken me to get back into it - I decided not to!
Admiration for the EXTRA MILE
I am a HUGE Baryshnikov fan - I saw him dance a long while ago with a CHAIR it was beautiful.
Ok - Already cried like 4 times in Eps 1. The cinematography is awesome and the angsty side of it and mood. This is going to be a REALLY good story! I love it already. I could binge it but I won’t cuz my heart can’t take it. And by the way Song Kang is GORGEOUS!
Is it on Viki? Navillera? Anyway, the premise sounds weird but fun: A young guy and this old codger decide to train together in order to become ballerinos. I’d watch that, if only for the novelty of it.
My daughter had perform with a local ballet company when she was younger so I used to watch many rehearsals and ballet performances with wonder and envy. I think I had posted in another thread that watching Navillera felt like I was watching a story about myself and my daughter.
Part of my tears is the fact that I LOVE BALLET! I usually go to see LIVE the Nutcracker each year when I was able to see a LIVE orchestra with it. I have seen the Russian Ballet and a primo-ballerina from NY City. I wanted so badly to dance. I’m really SHORT. His beautiful long arms and legs make his moves look beautiful I’m glad he took the time to study how his body composition looked.
My daughter performed in the “Nutcracker” for 7 years, 5 as one of the “party girls”, once as Clara, and in the Corps. with the ballet company members for the last year. Her twin brother also performed for 3 years as one of the “party boys”. All three of my kids belonged to their school orchestras and a community orchestra and it wasn’t unusual for the orchestras to play the Nutcracker Suite for their holiday performances. Needless to say, I listened to the Nutcracker Suite a lot.
