The ABC's of Ballet Steps, Performances, and Legends

Posted Aug 25 2008 2:42pm

A friend of mine had an assignment to write a sample of an "ABC's of..." children's book. She chose to do "The ABC's of Ballet" and was having some serious problems with V, Q, and X, to which I reply "Duh, Vaganova method, Don Quixote, and Xenia Ivanovich". She doesn't like any of my suggestions, so I've decided to make my own.

A - Agrippina Vaganova

B - battement

C - Cecchetti method

D - Darcey Bussell

E - Ekaterina Maximova

F - Firebird

G - Galina Ulanova

H - Hallelujah Junction

I - Illuminations

J - jete

K - Kristin Sloan

L - Lost Sonata

M - Mikhail Baryshnikov

N - Natalia Markova

O - Oksana Skorik*

P - Polina Semionova

Q - Don Quixote

R - Rudolf Nureyev

S - Svetlana Zakharova

T - tour en l'air

U - Undertow

V - Vaslav Nijinsky

W - Wendy Wheelan

X - Xenia Ivanovich

Y - Yuan Yuan Tan

Z - Zhanna Ayupova

*(I'm only mildly A Beautiful Tragedy obsessed, and it hasn't even come out yet...)

So, there you have it. I did it. Now, I'm gonna try and do the whole thing with just names.

Stay on your toes,
