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.

14 may, the three pillars of dance


Dance companies are supported with a balance of their repertoire for their audiences. In most cases, this is defined by a conscience thought of how the development of the organization progresses from season to season, on stage and behind the scenes. For SDT, we have an established group of 19th century classical ballets, as well as a set of masterpieces created for other dance companies by well-known international choreographers and then brought into our repertoire to enrich it. Finally, there ballets created especially for our dancers and audiences that show our own distinctive strengths and qualities. Examples of each of these important foundations to the repertory will be presented and their place within SDT explained.
