    Amazing how little the body language has advanced!

  • Deniz Erdinc says:

    Here’s me at 6 years old with the Istanbul Symphony…. haha ttps://

  • David Boxwell says:

    Should any innocent 10 year-old be exposed to “Bolero”, much less faux conduct it?

  • Petros Linardos says:

    This is dancing, not conducting.

    • Max Grimm says:

      At least he was 10 at the time and not 35, like a certain Mexican conductor 😉

      • M2N2K says:

        How “certain” are you that the 35-year-old “conductor” you are talking about is “Mexican”?

        • Max Grimm says:

          “Certain”. If a person holds a Mexican passport and refers to themselves as “Mexican”, it’s good enough for me.
          Another question might be whether “the 35-year-old” is a conductor or a conductor?

  • Freddynyc says:

    That’s just silly – I can bet he cringes when he sees this….. ; D

  • Cyril Blair says:

    Cute. But not as cute as this conductor…

  • Patrick says:

    He is not conducting. He is moving his arms in a manner that mimics conducting.
