What is ONE @ The Ballet?


Initiated in 2009, One @ the Ballet is a monthly in-studio dance presentation which aims to break the barrier created by the stage, bringing audience one step closer to the dancers. These part-narrative sessions conducted by Artistic Director Janek Schergen will explore a wide spectrum of dance topics which will enable individuals gain a greater insight into the world of dance. From something as detailed as the little rituals dancers perform before they go onstage, to the creative process a choreographer undergoes to create a new work, the audience can expect to enhance their knowledge of dance and also watch our dancers up close and personal as they perform excerpts from our main performance seasons.




Every professional dancer starts their day with the ritual of taking company class, whether they are new to the company or a dancer of great experience. Their daily rehearsal schedule following can consist of a full five hour day of learning and working on either a single ballet or up to six or more different pieces. How dancers learn and retain choreography, structure their movements with music and function as a cohesive unit is a fascinating study for us to delve into this time. Individual dancers all have rituals that help them prepare and perform at their peak. All the many nuances of how a ballet gets to stage will be discussed and segments of upcoming repetoire will be presented
