Did I say I love ballet?
When I was young, I seriously enjoyed ballet and wanted to major in it. I sometimes imagine what if I become a ballet dancer.
When I was in Korea, I did ballet as a hobby. And also in the Netherlands! There was some awesome classes for students. I really want to do it in Japan if I can.
I also like watching the ballet on youtube. It would be great if I can watch them in a real theater, but it is soooo expensive to me now. When I earn money, I hope I can watch it a lot 🙂
When I watch the performance, amazing dancers give me inspiration and it makes me happy.
I especially like classical ballet even though I think the story is kind of old-fashioned. Still the music and the dances are so strikingly beautiful and I have no choice but to fall into it.
Among the classical ballet, I introduce three masterpiece.
- Don Quixote
The first one is Don Quixote. It is very elastic and has bright vibe. The characters are pleasant and the story is based on the happy drama. Kitri and Basil’s love is the main of the story.
2. La Esmeralda
You might think it is not friendly at all, but actually this performance is made based on the famous novel Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo. Everyone will know Notre-Dame de Paris! Isn’t it?
3. Swan lake
This is also other famous work and you might heard of it. The story sometimes has happy ending or sad ending, which varies from theater to theater. One Prima ballerina both plays ‘Odette’ and ‘Odile’. I like Odile’s character more than Odette.
I attached three videos of Natalia Osipova, one of my favorite Prima Ballerina. I hope you enjoy the video!
