Organic Ballet

Organic Ballet is an approach to practicing classical dance. It unifies this highly developed dance technique with human movement nature. As a concept it:

➤ Recognises a harmony between the physiology of the dancer and the dance itself

➤ Appreciates organic movement patterns – round, wavy, spiralling, and expansive – as innate to ballet

➤ Focuses on creating movement out of deep inner action, and not only from external shape

➤ Supports the individuality of each dancer by emphasising the personal optimum

➤ Values ballet technique as a tool of the dancer – and not the dancer as a tool for technique

➤ Incorporates sensory awareness exercises to enliven the dancer’s whole-body coordination

➤ Remains open to new discoveries, such as exploring the growing knowledge about the fascial system and its role in human movement.
