This online informal performance provides an inside look at the art of classical ballet. From the training and preparation of a dance artist through the elements of choreography and stage craft, the viewer is given an intimate look at the power of this beautiful art form. Following a brief history of ballet and Dance Theatre of Harlem, the performance begins with exercises at the barre and the reasoning behind them before quickly moving on to jumping, partnering and lifts. Finally, to demonstrate the expressive power of ballet, excerpts from different styles of ballet are presented. Students will have the opportunity to engage in Q&A discussion with members of the company during the event.
