The shooting of the project of the TV channel "Russia K" "The Big Ballet" is in full swing. Anastasia Egorova watched the rehearsals of the participants.
Getting on the TV project "The Big Ballet" for Julian Mackay was a dream. On the way to her, the dancer was not stopped even by a strict schedule in his native Mikhailovsky Theater. "I do not like to give up, so if there are difficulties, I always struggle with them," says project participant Julian McKay.
Shootings on the project are daily. We have to constantly fly from St. Petersburg to Moscow and back. It was not an obstacle and the absence of a partner - a ballerina from the Grand Opera at the rehearsal was injured. New dancer Skylu Brandt Julian found in the troupe of the American Ballet Theater a few days before the project. "It turns out that Skyla had 3 days, she taught in the plane, she came and knew some things better than I did. It's fantastic, "said project participant Julian McKay.
"Big Ballet" is two weeks of intensive work. The load on the participants is enormous. Since morning rehearsals, shooting in the evening. In addition to the main program, dancers will learn five additional numbers for a gala concert, which will complete the project. They put choreographers from Europe. "The European school is another school. Let it be modern choreography or classical ballet. The more the guys absorb into themselves, the more each artist tries with different choreographers, the more he enriches himself and becomes a universal dancer, "said the choreographer, curator of the project Sofya Gaidukova.
The audience will see the prima ballerina of the Bolshoi Theater on TV, the sketch of La Scala to Svetlana Zakharov. She will perform in a new role for herself. "I was immediately warned, if there are any mistakes or wishes, if I do something wrong, say something is not right or wrong, I always have a lot of takes," the project leader, People's Artist of Russia, smiles. Svetlana Zakharova.
TV project is a chance for the dancers to reveal themselves, to enchant the audience, to surprise themselves and, of course, the jury members. "I will bite, and prick, and praise, and iron, and scold, it's normal, without this it is impossible that everything was good, everything was awesome," says choreographer, jury member Vladimir Malakhov.
In the third season, TV viewers are again waiting for the opening. The "Big Ballet" will surprise with new names. In the meantime, we give all lovers of ballet art the most memorable releases of 2016! On Saturdays from June 30 (16:10) on the air of our channel - "GREAT BALLET-2016".
Julian Mackay is so far ahead of where he would be than if he had foolishly put his career in, for example, McKenzie's clumsy hands. He and Skylar are brilliant, risk-devouring artists who see the sky, not a ceiling. We can't wait to see what comes next.
