Please watch act 3 and 4. Describe what you saw… did you have any preconceived notions about this ballet? Was it what you expected? Can you tell the difference between what Marius Petipa choreographed (acts 1 and 3) and what Lev Ivanov choreographed (acts 2 and 4)? Please read the power point guides, antiquity and diaghilev to us.
I want very specific descriptions of the difference in the two choreographers work, using the elements of theater dance (music, lighting, costumes, choreography, etc)

Please watch the documentary provided in the link below. This is an incredibly important film and era. After you have watched the documentary (should budget about 2 hours to watch and respond) then return to this page and reflect on the film. Some possible contemplations could include, how the political climate affected dance during that time. How did the ballet russes seek out and find collaborations, what new ideas did they introduce to the previously very traditional exhibition of ballet? What is the significance of having 4 native american ballerinas in the united states at that time? How has the ballet russes influenced dance in the united states?
