Our Artistic Director and founder Suzie Birchwood has been working with Jürg Koch and GDance to develop a universal approach to teaching ballet. Suzie will be helping Jürg to adapt the ballet syllabus for different bodies, to create an online resource for ballet teachers, and to campaign for ballet examination boards to adapt their assessment criteria.
This is a fantastic project with the potential to change ballet forever. Suzie will be bringing the knowledge back to the ActOne team, so that they can add it to the repertoire of ballet exercises they are already teaching. We’ll make sure our dancers enjoy all the benefits of this exciting approach to formal dance technique. Watch the video:
