As we move into the second week of this term here are some new resources on Swan Lake for you to use.
For the younger students here is an activity pack you can download from English National Ballet. It includes activities to help you get to know the characters and the story. You will need a printer to print out the activity sheets
You can download the activity pack here here.
For the older students here is a beginners guide to ballet mime. Ballet mime was developed during the 19th century, the aim of ballet mime was to tell a story through gestures and was often used in action ballets to move the story along.
Below is a video that explains how ballet mime is used in Swan Lake. It will help you to understand what is being communicated when you watch the ballet. Enjoy!
