Odette~ I don't like that black swan is all about tricks. Odile is a lot of fun to dance, though, it's nice to be evil for a change.

I definitely prefer the white swan Odette because I like the good ones ;) I'm always at the side from the outsiders who are broken-hearted.

I picked odette because I really think her movement is gorgeous and I love the music too.

black swan all the way. I enjoy seeing the evil brewing inside her that is awesome and should be done more.

I have been told that I have great Port de Bras so, Odette really suits me. (For people who don't know me, I have a very slim upper body..)

However, when I guested in Korean National Ballet a few years ago, my Odile showed up so much better. :) I think I like Odile better. The music is more fun too!

It's really hard to decide, but I always have this bond pulling me toward Odile, because she is so sassy, and, fierce, and not like ballet (which is soft and gentile!). So I chose her!

Odile, Odile, Odile! I always do better with darker dances and characters for some reason, and I just like it more. Sad/Angry/dark pieces are my specialty :)

Hmm I think you can tell by the screen name! Actually though I love the good guys and especially Odette; she isn't exactly simpering.

Odile because she is so sassy!! There's more depth to her character than Odette, I think, she's so deceitful! That makes for an interesting role, even though Odette is the star really.

You can't have one without the other (apparently)! I think Odette is harder to do really well though. If you have the technique in the bag, Odile should be a walk in the park and just lots and lots of fun.

Having said that, bad Odettes are horrible to watch, but bad Odiles are hilarious.

I can't choose!

Odile. She's so seductive and dark. Mysterious even. There are so many light and delicate parts out there. Plus You could make a whole back story to her easier than Odette so you could play her better.

I couldn't choose ! Although I chose odile as her character is different to that of all the other main roles in ballets such as sleeping beauty , Giselle etc, I love how different she is and her fierceness and almost bravery .

This is from a dancer nowhere neat advanced enough to do pas de deux, but from videos I've seen, I'm gonna go with Odile. They are both so gorgeous, and seeing the same dancer portray both roles is a delight, but I still side with Odile. I most love strong, bold dancers, and that's Odile! Also, I tend to look at antagonists and think they're just misunderstood (I blame the comic books I've read), so sometimes I see Odile as a victim too: manipulated by Rothbart (or however it's spelled) to help him achieve his means.

But if we're just talking about the the PDD, well, they're both gorgeous! I do think the Odette one is a little pretty, but as a character I still like Odile more!

Odile, all the way- I tend to like the dark, seductive roles/characters more- probably because I can't do dark and seductive in real life! :P I much prefer Odette's music, though.

Odile, She's so powerful but has that graceful touch to her. I can imagine while dancing the Odile pas de duex I would be smirking the whole entire time. I think odile fits me more.Also,as others said, I like the darkness. I'm the type of girl that likes dark,mysterious characters.You really don't know who Odile really is and what she's like. You only know that she want's to seduce the prince and win him over.

I would love to be able to perform both parts, but I prefer Odette, because I am best at performing sad, slow, graceful roles. Also, the music to the white swan pas de deux is just so beautiful, it brings a lot of emotion out of me.
