The London Ballet Theatre LTD was started by Debbie Flevotomou and Nicola Guido, in order to form a new company for amateur adult dancers. It was intended as a place where adult dancers could learn interesting choreography while developing technique and artistry as professional dancers. We are a not for profit company, with all profits from performances going to Cancer Research UK. In the company’s first year, we did a voyage of discovery. We have chosen a mixed programme for our first performance which presented a challenge for our dancers.
We are pleased to announce that our winter term begin on 1st September 2019. Rehearsals, coaching, and training will run every Wednesday (7-8.30pm) at the Base Studios and Sundays (1.00-5.00pm) at The Place. Wednesdays will be reserved for Pas de Deux technique with an original neo-classical pieces set on Mozart music.Sundays will focus on Don Quixote and La Valse with corps and classical work as the main focus. This will lead up to a performance taking place beginning December – details to be confirmed.
This piece was commissioned by London Ballet Theatre and conceived and created by James Loffres.
Don Quixote is one of Marius Petipa’s much-loved 19th-century classics – its story is drawn from Miguel de Cervantes’s classic novel and set to Ludwig Minkus’s score. The ballet has long been acclaimed for its virtuoso dancing, beautiful and technically demanding ‘vision scene’ and the famously bravura and breath-taking Act III pas de deux.
La valse, poème chorégraphique pour orchestre (a choreographic poem for orchestra), is a work written by Maurice Ravel between February 1919 and 1920; it was first performed on 12 December 1920 in Paris. It was conceived as a ballet but is now more often heard as a concert work. Frederick Ashton also created a La valse ballet in 1958 for The Royal Ballet.
