New movie

September 14, 2008 at 9:12 pm | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

I found out about a movie called “Beautiful tragedy”.  It takes place at the Kirov in Russia and it shows what it is really like to be a ballerina there.  The teachers are not always nice.  And this is very sad but most of the girls there are anorexic.  These girls here are 15 and 16.  This video shows you what life is like there and like I said it is rewarding but hard work.

Hi guys this blog is about  what ballet is like in Russia.  The most world famious ballet schools are in Russia and there are only two of them.  They are known to be the best ballet boarding schools in the world and through out history.   The first greatest ballet school ever is the Kirov   and the second one is the Bolshoi.   I am going to fly down to Russia when I am 14 or 15 and audition for the Kirov and if I don’t make  it there then I will audition for the Bolshoi.  To  audition you have to be atleast  eight years old.  Amgain leaving home at eight years old for a ballet boarding school!    The young ones  have ballet class for  four hours and 30 min every day and the older girls in the schools  have ballet  ATLEAST  six hours everyday!   The teachers are super strict on there  ballerinas and sometimes yell.   Russia seems to be very serious about  ballet.  I can’t wait to audition and I hope I make it.  The auditions are every  Spring.    This will be my second year in ballet after this Summer And I have ballet tree times a week now.   I am 13 right now and I started this year or should I say last year when I was 12.   I practice for hours at home so I can get good  and during this school  year  in adition of my  three times a week classes I will practice  atleast five hours of ballet at home and on the weekends I will practice atleast 10 hours more like 12 hours on Saturday and Sunday!   Well now I will tell you more about  The Kirov ballet school and I will share more about the Bolshoi  another time.   The Kirov ballet school  has many world famious dancers and that is were most famious dancers come from.  My favorit  dancer is Anna Pavlova and she trained at the Kirov and she left home at 10 years old.   She was known to be the most expressive dancer ever.  This is Anna Pavlova
