| A lost delight of childhood ballet dreams
I haven I last saw this film in the early 50s but any wisecrack film researcher out there should revive this gem for ballet nostalgia of the loveliest kind..wistful, black & white images of the long-lost halls where we went to practise in our little ballet shoes & the echoes of the plunking piano music.. acute fears of failure, wild visions of relevant for the Russian ballet-lovers as well as us in England or America. It is a wonderful memory of childhood heart-stop in the excitement of a chance of dancing in the future that transformed our deary reality into sparkling hopes. A good Christmas film for TV that grannies & granddaughters will really love.
