For the love of ballet
Every dancer longs for a moment on stage.
This is exactly what the dancers of the Russian Ballet School received on Sunday evening (September 12), when they presented solo ballet and contemporary dance performances for a small audience at Parkhurst, under strict protocol. of Covid-19.
School principal Yana Auger explained that together with everyone, the school ballerinas had to adapt to new procedures during the pandemic and, for the time being, were benefiting from hybrid lessons – including online and on-site lessons, depending on the level of locking and unique concerns of each dancer.
She said Solo Night’s performance on Sunday was scheduled for the start of the year but had to be rescheduled when the third wave of the virus broke.
“Last year it was difficult to perform, but this year we were lucky enough to be on stage in April and then perform to a small audience of relatives on Sunday.”
Speaking of her love for the arts and for ballet, she explained that her ballerina school had learned to think and express themselves as performers, but to train like athletes. She said acting was what they loved the most and deserved their time in the limelight, having worked hard during the pandemic period.
She said she expected next year to be a more productive year, with plenty of opportunities to perform on stage, in front of a lot of people.
