    Royal Ballet dancers and Aakash Odedra filmed at 1,500 frames-per-second.

    www.roh.org.uk/about/deloitte-ignite/sampling-the-mythnnRoyal Ballet dancers Roberta Marquez, Melissa Hamilton and Federico Bonelli and contemporary dancer Aakash Odedra have been filmed with super slow-motion cameras in advance of their Sampling the Myth performances at Deloitte Ignite.nnShot at 1,500 frames-per-second, the film shows the nuances of balletic technique in great detail.nn'Filming the dancers in ultra slow motion really highlights the combination of athleticism and grace they have to master,' says director Tom Turner.

    'Filming with Aakash was especially insightful as his style is so different to classical ballet.

    Seeing him slowed down though, you see the similarities between contemporary and classical dance, both of which are based on phenomenally precise movement.'
