BALANCHINE TECHNIQUE

By Christian Tworzyanski
Intermediate, Advanced

28 April 2018 | from 11 am to 1 pm
29 April 2018 | from 11 am to 1 pm
Grimaldi Forum Monaco


 

This workshop sets out to study extracts from “Allegro Brillante,” a piece for 10 dancers created by Balanchine in 1956 for the New York City Ballet, to the romantic music of Tchaikovsky’s Piano concerto N° 3; “This ballet,” said the choreographer, “contains everything I know about classical ballet, in thirteen minutes of time.”

Led by Christian Tworzyanski, a dancer with the Ballets de Monte-Carlo, who himself danced for 10 years with the famous New York company, this workshop offers a general overview of the Balanchine technique, about which the dancer would like to emphasise, “the importance of timing and musicality which play a key role in interpretation of ballets… The aim is that each participant can understand the famous formula, ‘See the music and hear the dance.’”

This workshop is an introduction to the basics of Kathak and classical Indian dance with Priscilla Gauri (who was taught by Pandit Ravi Shankar Mishra of Benares). She will teach you the co-ordination, grace and rhythm so that you can grow through this ancestral art.

Kathak was born in the temples of the north of India more than four thousand years ago. It was developed in the courts of the Maharajas and Moghul Emperors to become today the major classical dance form of northern India, performed on stages across the whole world.
The two components of Kathak are:
- Nritya: expressive dance to tell a story with the body, hands and facial expressions.
- Nritta: technical and rhythmic dance.
