Description

The Odile Marie, Petite Black Swan Doll

Created by professional ballet dancers, Mark Erickson and Tiffany Koepke, the Odile Marie, Petite Black Swan doll is the smaller of the taller version.

Featuring a delightful hand-painted expression and long dark hair, she is costumed in an intricate black tutu adorned with jewel scalloped feathers and sparkling golden accents. Knee-high pink-satin ballet shoes complete her look.

Measuring 11 ½” inches tall, Odile has 13 points of articulation so she can be posed in all of the classical ballet positions.

Reminiscent of Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake performed so eloquently by the ABT.

History

Ballet

In classic or contemporary ballet, dancing may tell a story, express a mood, or simply reflect the music in movement. Ballet as part of staged performances originated in the Italian Renaissance courts of the 15th and 16th centuries and from there spread to France. The creation of classical ballet as we know it today occurred during the reign of the art-loving French king Louis XIV in the mid-17th century. During the Romantic era, ballet technique evolved to express new ideas, most notably with women dancing en point, or on their toes, allowing them to appear weightless and otherworldly.
 
Among the choreographers who helped bring ballet into the modern age by exploring new visual and dramatic styles are George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and—bridging the worlds of classical dance and Broadway—Agnes de Mille and Jerome Robbins.
