Ballet Class Vol 2 – Venti Petrov DVD
This DVD presents a complete ballet class from the beginning barre to the ending reverence. In most educational DVDs the dancer wears practice clothes and practice slippers. Venti’s DVD is filmed with the ballerina performing in a tutu and pointe shoes. This by itself makes the production more of a performance than simply a demonstration of exercises.
Every combination is performed in the grand classical tradition. It includes complete barre exercises, exercises at the center, small jumps, medium jumps, and big jumps. These are the movements that create the strength and flexibility of a future dancer and the elegant grace with which she moves.
There are 53 combinations in all – for intermediate and advanced levels as well as bios and performance clips.
The featured dancer in the DVD, Oksana Maslova, is a superbly talented ballerina from Ukraine.
The bonus CD includes extra long tracks of all the music used in the class.
The music used in this DVD is a unique compilation of specially arranged gypsy and folk music created in collaboration with world class ballet accompanist and composer, Olga Merson.
“Ballet Class with Venti Petrov Vol. 2” is well constructed, correctly executed, and beautifully presented.
It can be used and enjoyed by anyone who has serious consideration of the value of ballet as an art form. Venti Petrov’s many-faceted talents come together perfectly in this invaluable tool for preparing the classical dancer and carrying the classical ballet technique into its future.
