I'd like to enter NFAA's youngARTS program in the ballet category, which involves recording a solo. (Participants are responsible for obtaining all necessary releases for choreography as well as music, if applicable.) I don't want to do something obvious and overdone like Kitri or Aurora, but it would be nice not to choreograph something, so I looked around youtube and saw Zakharova performing Aspicia's variation from Pharaoh's Daughter... youtube.com . . . I really like it, but I have no idea about the copyright issues. For one I'm not sure if it's Marius Petipa's or Pierre Lacotte's choreography. Would I need a release to dance this? I know the Balanchine Trust is super strict about choreography and who can dance it, but that's the extent of my legal knowledge. :? Any advice?
