When you research into crazy belief systems and symbols that, apparently, our elites believe, it is easy to become dejected. But it is imperative to fight this feeling. This is exactly what the powers want. They want the little people to be depressed and unable to fight. How do you fight them?
Beauty. In all its guises. In nature, animals, our fellow humans, art, music and dance. The consistent degradation of our arts and relationships is weapon that the powers use to take away our escape from their lifeless systems.
Ballet of late has been the focus of the campaign of ugly. All those string bean gymnastic contortionists posing as dancers or those DIVERSITY dancers who look like boxers are used specifically to deform the art. At the least we still have some who hold the flame. I’m truly sorry that I can’t see Gillian Murphy’s debut as Giselle. Time and funds are working against me. But I’m eagerly waiting for photos and reviews of what I’m sure will be a beautiful performance.
The famed Russian ballerina Irina Kolpakova is coach to many of the ABT dancers. I grew up on her Sleeping Beauty video and was thoroughly spoiled by her pure elegance and classicism in form. She was one of those few dancers who were perfect in shape and temperament for the art form. In this clip, Kolpakova demonstrates a section of the Giselle pas de deux for Murphy. All the while proving she still has that magic that made ballet fans the world over love her.
