Pas de Deux

Swan Lake wouldn't be complete without the prima ballerina and her male partner showing off together. They are so strong and yet so graceful. The hours of training and practice it takes to reach this level must be enormous.

Beautiful shots.

Your last shot is my favourite of these. I imagine their entire days are spent practicing and training. I read an article the other day with an interview with a member of a company doing the Nutcracker in Toronto. He said he alternates roles with other dancers routinely, which means not doing the exact same moves over and over again that you would be doing if you only played the one part in every show. Apparently it minimizes wear and tear on the body.
