“language” every time a new choreographer arrives.
To make you feel like a Rambert dancer, Dzierzon will let you experience how to be a creative collaborator when a new choreography is created. She will demonstrate how different tools, tasks and elements of improvisation can develop your own movement imagination.

This Summer it will be possible.

This stunning and famous ballet has been performed for almost 150 years. Rehearsals for the very first performance in Moscow began in March 1876 and went on for almost a year.
Under the direction of Mirella Simoncini you will have a 90 minutes rehearsal-experience as if you are a professional dancer getting ready to perform Swan Lake.
The original choreography (after Petipa and Ivanov) will be adjusted to a suitable amateur-level for the intermediate student in ballet.
