Back by popular demand, Dance Club welcome to the stage! This free club to talk all things dance starts back again on Monday 18th January. From 7.30pm – 8.30pm join us to discuss dance. Every month we take a topic, show, dance and dissect the discipline, cogitate on the choreography and discuss! And all from the comfort of your own home.
So this session we have a few things to discuss. We all log on and have a chat about this month dance choices. Have a look below to see what we aim to discuss on Monday 18th January;
Ahhh this beautiful ballet is from 1892 and is a two act ballet, choreographed by Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov with an unforgettable score by Tchaikovsky. It is adapted from ETA Hoffman’s story ‘The Nutcracker and the Mouse King.” It has gained popularity as a ballet that is traditionally showcased around Christmas time. The story is stuffed full to the brim with Christmas sparkle as it is set on Christmas Eve and Clara receives a doll. Magically it comes to life and fights the Mouse King. The ballet then highlights various dances inspired from countries around the world and the most famous sequence is the dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.
Yes, thanks to one of our amazing Friends, Marina, we have two shows listed below for when you need more of a dance fix.
2. American Ballet theatre – Isabella Boylston and James Whiteside – with their pas de deux from the Nutcracker.
3. Sugar Plum pas de deux: Adagio (Nuñez, Muntagirov, The Royal Ballet) – this ballet dance is from 2018.
