Do you remember Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean? They were amazing, truly understanding the music and finding the right dancing moves to interpret the sound.

After listening to Ravel's bolero, now watch their dance on ice. Isn't it breath taking?

Instrument worthy of this music? A quite suprising one, rebolo, the Brazilian drum, completely different sound



Who could ever forget Torvill & Dean's performance of Ravel's Bolero. It was absolutely mesmerizing. That was where they got all the 6's. Brilliant! I can't believe you are on the letter R already!!

@This - I knew it! You did react :) And yes, time flies!

I have always loved Ravel's Bolero but the movie 10 just about ruined it for me...Torvill & Dean's performance restored this beautiful piece to it's original lovliness...Thanks!

Goodness 27 years has gone by since watching those olympics? Wow am I getting old.

I do remember that performance, and it was wonderful watching it again!

I think Ravel's Bolero and that awful movie, 10 comes to mind. I'd forgotten about Torvill & Dean!

I’m blogging my way back from Z to A, and I’d love for you to take a peek at my “R” post: Right Here, Right Now..

"A story is not like a road to follow … it's more like a house. You go inside and stay there for a while, wandering back and forth and settling where you like and discovering how the room and corridors relate to each other, how the world outside is altered by being viewed from these windows. And you, the visitor, the reader, are altered as well by being in this enclosed space, whether it is ample and easy or full of crooked turns, or sparsely or opulently furnished. You can go back again and again, and the house, the story, always contains more than you saw the last time. It also has a sturdy sense of itself of being built out of its own necessity, not just to shelter or beguile you."
