The pilot project in the ballet performance field

Awareness and visibility of the creative processes in ballet through the performing pilot project

The pilot project in the ballet performance field is a private-funded, practice-based Viennese platform anchored in the Ballet Research Center. Its purpose is to offer the awareness and visibility of the ballet creative processes. As these processes are complex and merge various scientific movement concepts with specific aesthetics, they are difficult to recognize. Our intention is to bring them to the surface. After a successful rolling of the Noja-Nebyla STAGE Education training pilot project, we attempt to run the next pilot project, this time in the performing field. 

Multiple types of intelligence

Exposure to the various ballet creations presented to different audiences contributes substantially to personal and artistic development. As scientific discoveries lately showed, there are multiple types of intelligence. Ballet dancers combine a couple of them, in some cases quite many of them!

The processes of learning, performing, and teaching ballet are connected

As in numerous artistic researching programs, case studies play a main role. We chose for this pilot to work with dancers of the training program Noja-Nebyla Stage Education, students of DANCEARTS, and international guest teachers and artists.

The ultimate goal of our Ballet Research Center

The ultimate goal of our Ballet Research Center is to optimize the processes of learning, performing and teaching ballet and to connect them. Beside the block of aquiring ballet knowledge and passing it on to the next generations, the block of performing – as applying the skills on stage- is one important parameter of research.

Embracing different backgrounds and exploring new perspectives

The pilot project in the ballet performance field embraces different backgrounds of ballet dancers and explores new artistic perspectives. All our dancers are well trained in the syllabus of classical dance, and many of them won international prizes. They are all connected by the bond of honesty, passion, and beauty of this art.

The repertory of the performing pilot project is based on the classical, neoclassical and contemporary choreographies.
