EN TOURNANT (PRETTY POINTE PIROUETTES!) Part 2
Celebrating all things "turn"! From triple pirouettes to chaines, from attitude/arabesque turns to double pique turns, this upbeat video has it all! Award-winning dancer/choreographer/photographer Kira Seamon's "turn highlights" video includes some of the most famous music in the Classical repertoire! Kira has been honored to have received grants from her local Cultural Council for her One-Woman concerts. Possessing an extensive musical knowledge, one of her concerts saw Kira combining her dance and choreography with her piano performance. A huge fan of the Classical/Baroque/Romantic Era musical repertoire, Kira sought to create humorous pairings between dance and music. (For example: She paired "Paquita" choreography with music from Carmina Burana. And the entire "William Tell Overture" section, which concludes the video, was performed in studio to entirely different music...mostly from La Bayadere, La Sylphide and Raymonda. Kira was especially thrilled with the final result of this video, as the "William Tell Overture" seems to fit very nicely with the dance movements.) Thank you for watching!
