A Graceful Moment - Ballet

Many, MANY years ago as a young girl, ballet took up my every spare moment. In fact every week and often daily for 19 years. Even though it was a long time ago I remember how gruelling and exacting it was. It was truly a discipline that took focus and a lot of hard work. As demanding as it was I adored the perfection it demanded, the feeling of accomplishment when you pushed your body that little bit further and you reached a new height.

I came across this video of Marian Kanno and Giacomo Bevilaqua from Staatsballet of Berlin. They were captured in slow motion, 1000 frames per second. The video captures the elegant lines and perfecting movements of the dancers, and slows it down enough for us to appreciate it. Enjoy!
