Next Session: Pas D'Action, Variation and Coda

25 October, Saturday, 1pm - 2pm

SDT Studios @ Bugis+ Mall, Level 7


Email to register.


In classical repertory, divertissements form the central aspects of most works. Solos and variations are not just a part of pas de deux, but are used as a vehicle to show off a dancer’s technical prowess and technique. Codas and finales are the fireworks of dance choreography whether danced by a couple or a full cast. There are countless examples that we will explore and demonstrate for our audience.
