3 day intensive
With: Mirella Simoncini
Saturday 24 and Sunday 25 August 2019
3-days intensive (3x 195 min. incl. 3 balletclasses)
DASHING & DELIGHTFUL is a three day intensive for young professionals and intermediate/advanced students. You will dance well-known classical repertoire danced by Carlotta Grissi, muse to the choreographer Jules Perrot and to the poet Théophile Gautier.
We will take a close look at Giselle which was created in 1841 for her by Perrot and Gautier. Carlotta was described as a delightful Giselle in the eternal story of love and betrayal, which immediately established her as a great star.
Three years later Grissi was absolutely dashing in La Esmeralda, a ballet inspired by the novel Notre-Dame de Paris by Victor Hugo and again choreographed for her by Jules Perrot.
Each day will begin with a class especially focused on what is needed for repertoire. Working on pointes is optional, the level is to some extent adjustable.
