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.

17 october, the Arc of a DANCER'S career



This particular One @ the Ballet will examine the arc of a professional dancer's career from student through their performing career. How long does it take to train a dancer to professional status and what elements define a successful talent? What are the rewards in a dancing career? What do dancers do once they retire from performing? Every dancer makes a unique and personal journey through a professional career and we will attempt to unravel some of the mystery surrounding their attraction to dance as an art form.
