Happy Tuesday All! Today I wanted to share a video of one of my favorite variations. This is Marianela Nuñez of the Royal Ballet performing the Lilac Fairy variation from Sleeping Beauty. It's slightly different then the version normally performed and I have to say I like this version so much better! (Plenty of turns!)
I always admired the Lilac Fairy variation, but beyond variations class, I never danced it. I was more the Canary Fairy or Pointer Fairy type, but I always wanted to have the extensions and the softness the Lilac Fairy required. C'est La Vie! Anyway, here's a bit of ballet inspiration for you!
