How ballet has changed

If there is one thing I will never dislike, it’s probably ballet. But how things have changed! Ballet used to be more about spirit and emotions (yep, emotions!) and less about the perfect turnout or 32 fouettes. (See Swan Lake) To show how different things have become, I offer you two viedo’s: the first one is Tamara Toumanova dancing the solo from Don Quichote. The second one is lina Somova doing the same. The same? Not really. Tell me, which one do you like the most?

Also check out this post on the same subject! It’s like an extended version of this one.
