Bring the family for this unique and special presentation by director and choreographer Carole Alexis and performance by Ballet des Amériques.
Ballet – or dance training in general – is a life of sacrifice. Sacrifice is a gift or an offering to what we hold in highest esteem. In a universal language without need for words, ballet offers a vision that is aesthetically, emotionally and intellectually engaging and socially relevant. Now more than ever, the universal language of ballet is able to move and to challenge us as human beings regardless of our particular cultural, social or political affiliations if we but let go of the monochromatic “pink” stereotype and allow this artform to shine in a kaleidoscopic vision of glorious color.
This presentation outlines and illustrates the pedagogical and aesthetic principles that guide me in directing the rigorous training, the artistic creations and public performances at Ballet des Amériques.
