Neoclassical workshop inspired by SVB’s Directors Choice Program

Our first Repertoire workshop with Silicon Valley Ballet is “Neoclassical workshop inspired by Silicon Valley Ballet’s Director’s Choice Program”

They choose the repertoire for this workshop from their upcoming performance Director’s Choice on February 19–21, 2016 at San Jose Center for the Performing Arts.

Here is the message from the teacher!

Join us for a workshop in the neoclassical style leading up to Silicon Valley Ballet’s performances of “Director’s Choice” Feb. 19-21, 2016. Learn choreography inspired by this thrilling performance personally curated by Artistic Director José Manuel Carreño to show off the versatility of the SVB dancers, and work on the specific style of movement required to master this unique genre of dance.
