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, international ballet companies


The concept of an independent ballet company goes back to The Ballets Russess, founded by the legendary Sergei Diaghilev in 1909. Before that, ballet companies had been part of an overall theatre structure as opposed to independent institutions. After the foundation of The Ballets Russes, several important and influential companies such as The Royal Ballet, The Australian Ballet, New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, Netherlands Dans Theatre and numerous dance companies were formed to represent a more national perspective. Many grew from ballet schools that were established to train dancers in the art of dance. Each group developed in its own unique style and perspective with their own repertoire and distinctive look with dancers and performance. To some extend, this has altered with a modern world and global perspective. What still remains unique will be part of this One @ the Ballet. We will show how we prepare SDT for touring programmes and performances.
