Ballet Swan Lake Fouetée: Nureyev and Fonteyn

This 1967 clip from Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake, legends Rudolf Nureyev and Margot Fonteyn give a very brief glimpse of the incredible athleticism involved in ballet. So. Many. Spins.

In the archives: more spinning and more ballet, including Amanda Smith, young Mikhail Baryshnikov, Milena Sidorova’s The Spider, and the Washington Ballet’s hardest dance moves.
