Library of Choreography

For aspiring piano students there are Bach’s two and three-part inventions and Bartok’s Mikrokosmos, both designed to develop skills and refine evolving sensibilities. With that model in mind, Ballet Tech has resolved to build a library of new choreography imagined for and designed on emerging dancers. This will be a repertory of original dances, dreamed up and composed by premiere dance makers, for fledgling dancers to hone their skills and ignite their imaginations. And, of course, intended to delight the eye and enchant the fancy of audiences of all ages.

Launched in 2016, Julia Eichten’s Monsieur and Brian Brooks’s Panorama were the first additions to the library.

In 2017 three new works were added:
Pointing, by Eliot Feld
The Wild Current, by Laura Careless
It’s The Effort That Counts, by Stephanie Terasaki, Conner Bormann and Riley O’Flynn
