Time for a Ken Russell Challenge!
I've started Ballet lessons five days a week after a few years lull and after not seriously studying since I was about seven. I had nearly four years, stopping right before secondary school. This will be an ongoing challenge with updates. I'm in so much pain I could swim in Nurofen. One can't really delve into Ken's work without having at least some rudimentary knowledge of the Ballet. He trained in Ballet religiously for four years in his 20s and the discipline (in my opinion the most difficult to master of ALL the arts) and dancers are in nearly all of his films.
So onwards and upwards, grand battements and Fouetté rond de jambe en tournant we go!
