  • Would you have liked to have gone to a school like this? Why or Why not?
  • Do you think the children are happy? Why or Why not?
  • What are some similarities and differences between the kind of ballet they do at the Kirov versus the ballet we are experimenting with in class?
  • In the video, what methods and regiments do you agree with and which do you not agree with in regards to training dancers?
  • Do you like the way they dance? Why or why not?
  • Which character stood out for you the most? Explain why.
  • What did you learn from this video?
