In March 2022, American Ballet Theatre posted a rehearsal video from Aran Bell's Don Quixote Grand Pas de Deux variation. Bell's variation is noteworthy for his top-notch execution and several unique innovations that are rarely done onstage if at all. This video takes you through the unique aspects demonstrating Bell's stellar technique, which allows for substantial creativity that in real time even experienced ballet followers say: "That's great! What is it?"
