The Wasp or Bee Dance


This website:éri_(Gautier) gives Gautier’s own synopsis of his ballet “Le Peri”, including a description of the dancer's behaviour during the Bee Dance.

This website: La Peri on Vimeo shows a Brooklyn Ballet dancer performing the Bee Dance in 2011. This is not the original choreography of Gautier’s 1843 premiere, but is still the romantic ballet interpretation of the dance.
