Morning Melodies

Morning Melodies is our very special morning dedicated to our youngest and proudest ballet students. 

Our audience becomes a part of their theatre experience as they take some of their first steps on stage. 

It is a very proud and precious time as we encourage our young dancers to look out into the audience. Their eyes light up and their energy lifts as they try to concentrate to perform as best they can.

Life is full of special moments and Morning Melodies is one of those times.

I Spy...

For our 2020 Jazz Incorporated performance we will be performing; 'The Concert', the 'Union Jack' and 'I Spy...'.

 

Our Jazz Incorporated performances usually have a small, enjoyable ballet piece (not strictly classical), a defilé and jazz performance. This year we will not be performing our Annual Defilé as we cannot have all our students in the theatre at once and have only just completed our open classes. Instead the students will have a small piece to perform in 'The Concert'.

             'The Concert' was choreographed by Jerome Robbins. It was first performed by the 'New York City Ballet' at the 'City Centre of Music and Drama' on March the 6th, 1956.

This is one of our favourite ballets as it is enjoyed by everyone, dancers and audience members, young and old. It is a Comedic ballet that shows humour in the relationships between people and situations. One of the most favoured dances is the 'Mistake Waltz' as it shows a lot of the mistakes that could happen during rehearsals and sometimes performances,

but as dancers, we hope you miss them.

Union Jack

The 'Union Jack' is a ballet made by George Balanchine to honour the British Heritage of the United States. The ballet premiered in the 'New York State Theatre' on the 13th of May, 1976.

The 'Union Jack' is a ballet created with music adapted form British pieces by Hershey Kay. The music combined with the sailor costumes gives you a good sense of the ocean and is the perfect intro

I Spy...

for the adventure across the seas...

Our aim for 'I Spy...' was to create an enjoyable Jazz performance for our audience with our restricted number of dancers back stage. Usually we could have all our Jazz students perform at once but now, with restrictions, we have to swap our students classes between each performance. We have tailored 'I Spy...' to allow the students to be more involved with the story telling, while still being able to swap between each class, hopefully creating a slightly different, but enjoyable performance each time.
