A dance interlude

I worked for our state opera company for several years, and while I have zero training or education in opera, one of the pieces of advice I got from our marketing director was to just trust your ear.

Is there an equivalent for dance? I think this is beautiful – it’s especially lovely how the wind makes a third partner – but doesn’t it strike a note of discord when the dancer’s feet are flexed when she’s in a backbend?

Maybe it’s just me.
