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.
23 January Dance, The Nobel Art
As Mr. Balanchine once said “I do not want people who want to dance, I want people who have to dance”. Dancers are a unique and beautiful breed of artists. A person who has trained and danced professionally will forevermore describe themselves first and foremost “I am a dancer”. How they prepare and progress to professional status, why they choose to pursue careers in dance, as well as their life of rehearsal, performances and touring is all part of the rewards of a life of a dancer. This One @ the Ballet will focus on the special quality that dancers share with each other as friends and artists. The trust and bonds that dancers share is demonstrated in the segments of ballets presented for this session. Three of SDT’s dancers will be interviewed to give you their history from their distinctive personal perspective.
One @ the Ballet is held once a month on a Saturday from 1pm -215pm.
