Bournonville Ballet Technique - DVD

Bournonville Ballet Technique - DVD $29.99

Knud Arne Jurgensen & Vivi Flindt 

Published by DanceBooks

This DVD offers a new approach to the study of the technique of the great nineteenth century Danish choreographer August Bournonville

It presents fifty class exercises, selected and reconstructed from the notations of Bournonville's successor, Hans Beck, by Vivi Flindt and Knud Arne Jürgensen

These not only show how Bournonville's dance style was directly inherited from the great Fremch dancer and teacher Auguste Vestris, but also offer a remarkably authentic document of both the form and content of the Bournonville classes as they were performed more than a century ago

Beautifully danced by Rose Gad, principal dancer of the Royal Danish Ballet, and Johan Kobborg, former principal dancer of the Royal Danish Ballet (and now principal dancer of the Royal Ballet), this recording reveals a legacy of extraordinary value: the most accurate possible representation of a Bournonville class as it was performed in his day

Uncoded, for world-wide use on PAL compatible equipment
