It’s always exciting to discover talented dancers when they are still young and witness their artistic and technical improvement  as they rise through the ranks of a professional company. I’ve found such gems in competitions like YAGP (Youth America Grand Prix),  Prix de Lausanne and Varna, as well. Such is the case of Miko Fogarty, a ballerina to follow.

The Video Dictionary of Classical Ballet



The Video Dictionary of Classical Ballet by Kevin McKenzie and Georgina Parkinson

"Ballet was never just a set of physical exercises or positions.
It was always a set of beliefs,
an aspiration to nobility,
an aspiration to the extraordinary,
to the 'merveilleux'.
It was a way of life. And it is today a connection to the past,
a direct connection, both to Louis [IV] and to Marie Taglioni,
and to the worlds that they lived in.
It is a living, moving history."
