Following the successful inaugural production of Celebration in Dance last August, Singapore Dance Theatre (SDT) will be collaborating with the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) once again for a one-night-only performance. Celebration in Dance presents a rare and brilliant opportunity for RAD students in Singapore to perform on the prestigious stage at the Esplanade Theatre on 9 July 2017. SDT will be presenting two enchanting classical works, Rubies by George Balanchine and Paquita after Marius Petipa.
“Celebration in Dance is a unique, one of a kind collaboration developed by the Royal Academy of Dance and Singapore Dance Theatre. It is our hope to bring student dancers closer to professional dance performance through this experience with SDT in a performance celebrating everything that is magical and special in the art of dance and performance. Students devote themselves to the study of ballet to experience the process of learning and the rewards of dancing in front of an audience. It is my desire to create memories for young dancers that will last beyond the moments of preparation and performance and carry over into their future lives. These kinds of things are priceless and have an incomparable value connected to them. Moments like these are what we wish for our children and I welcome you to join us for the experience.” says Artistic Director Janek Schergen.
Venue: Esplanade Theatre
