Medora act 2
Company – English National Ballet
Position – Principal Dancer
Schooling – Vienna State Opera Ballet School
In this class, Natascha teaches Medora’s solo which appears within the famous pas de trios of Conrad, Ali and Medora in Act 2 of “Le Corsaire”. In gala concerts, this piece is often performed as a pas de deux between Medora and Ali, as made famous by Margot Fonteyn and Rudolf Nureyev.
After a beautiful studio performance of this Solo, Natascha returns to the beginning and talks through every step, start to finish, explaining how she dances this exquisite solo while also giving her own tips and advice for success in executing the technique to make this solo look as beautiful and clean as she does when she dances it!
After talking teaching the solo, Natascha performs it again for you while facing the other way, so that you can learn the solo as if standing behind her. This is designed to make it easier for you to understand what she is doing and to give you a rarely seen point of view.
Learn with the best or simply watch and enjoy!
