SHOW DIARY 2023 1
For Dance Institute is putting on a show !!!
It has been a little while since the last show that we put on, it was the wonderful show about dreams in 2019 called “Dream on” at the Giacosa theatre in Aosta. This year we back at the Palais in Saint-Vincent with a big stage to fill and we cannot wait to perform again in 2023.
25th of March is the date and with only a month to go I really want to write down some things that go on with all the preparation, rehearsals, costumes and organisation.
Where to start ?? with an idea and this year we have decided to take on the theme of Artificial Intelligence A.I and asked the questions.
- Is it taking over ?
- Is it everywhere ?
- Are we controlled by robots ?
- Do we need robots ?
- Can A.I have emotions ?
- Can we still keep our identity ?
It was not an easy theme but one that must be addressed for every decision that we make in the future and what better way to make people think and be aware of change than through dance.
the ideas soon arrived and the choreography process was underway, just a little preview of the music…. we are using both classic and modern , for ex. Kraftwerk , Depeche Mode and Supertramp.
We are also doing some pieces from the classic Giselle, next up a small video clip of the first rehearsal together still a long way to go but so exciting when the smaller students get to watch the older advanced students perform. also the professional trailer.
Music and Rhythm lesson with Jimmy
This year at For Dance Institute we have a special class once a month on Thursday afternoons it is with our longtime pianist Jimmy but this time swapping the piano for his Djembe. Jimmy teaches music in primary and secondary schools and the Suzuki method privately. He is great to watch with the students as he is able to maintain that hard sought after balance when teaching between discipline and fun.
The students react very well and improve their listening skills through the volume and rhythms of the djembe. Distractions are quelled instantly and the hour passes by very quickly, with a mixed group from age 8 to 11 Jimmy starts with easy beats and rhythms to more complex sequences culminating in moving and dancing with the whole body at the end.
Enjoy this video of the lesson
and don’t forget For Dance Institute is open to join all year round
Dancing in the Square
Per 3 giorni a fine Agosto la nostra scuola di danza For Dance Institute si è trasferita in Piazza Cavalieri di Vittorio Veneto, per noi seconda sede per lezioni di danza.
Sotto il sole splendente della riviera degli alpi, le alunne del grado 1 fino a quelle del grado Advanced 2 di danza classica e moderna sono salite sul palco, alcune non ballavano dall’inizio delle vacanze estive. Durante le lezioni abbiamo eseguito degli esercizi essenziali e divertenti. dopo le lezioni tenute al mattino abbiamo anche pranzato insieme e fatto delle foto meravigliose sul Viale.
Neanche la pioggia del secondo giorno è riuscita a fermarci, siamo rimaste insieme e abbiamo avuto il tempo di parlare del nostro prossimo progetto, lo spettacolo che si terrà a dicembre al Palais di Saint.Vincent
Le lezioni regolari della nostra scuola inizieranno mercoledì 7 settembre con i gradi pre primary / primary /grado 1 / Advanced 2. Tutte le lezioni, come ogni anno saranno tenute rigorosamente da insegnanti qualificate e motivate. Erica Del Maschio, una nostra alunna ora insegnante, sta per concludere il percorso CBTS e presto anche lei diventerà certificata dalla RAD recentemente ha anche superato l’esame del grado Advanced 1.
Durante l’anno 2022/23 vorremo trasmettere non solo semplici esercizi di danza ma messaggi importanti ai nostri allievi, cominciando con l’approccio al mondo dello spettacolo ed insegnando ai nostri allievi l’importanza del lavoro di gruppo. Voremmo anche far nascere nei nostri allievi un senso di curiosità verso la danza ed i suoi movimenti ad esempio chiedendoci perché eseguiamo certi movimenti e come nascono.
Greta Trussardi, nuovo membro della nostra scuola, con la sua energia esponenziale insegnerà un laboratorio coreografico,. Ogni sabato pomeriggio Valentina De Rosa insegnerà danza contemporanea e una volta al mese l’insegnante Elena Pisu con la sua lezione ci farà immergere nel mondo della Contemporanea.
La nostra scuola si può iniziare a frequentare dai tre anni in su, attraverso le lezioni del programma RAD, Royal Academy of Dance, un metodo che l’anno scorso ha compiuto 100 anni di storia ,100 anni di carriere per ballerini e insegnanti con tutte le emozioni, la disciplina, le amicizie e tantissime opportunità nel mondo globale della RAD.

Youth Grand Prix Italy Riccione 17-19 dicembre
Day 1 …The Journey
The journey to get to the Youth Grand Prix, that was being held in Riccione this year after skipping last year due to yes you guessed it Covid 19 did involve some last minute changes. On the Thursday morning at 8am we started by backtracking our way to Aosta Airport as we had to hire a car, unfortunately my car was making a strange noise for a few days now and it had to have a new belt , seat belt ? oh no, fan belt ? no no no another belt which my lack of mechanical knowledge does not stretch to. My ever ready to help husband drove Serena and i to Aosta and we met Lorenzo there with his very small back pack which serena and i could not believe held everything needed for the whole 3 days
My passengers were eager to get on the road mainly because i think it was about minus 8 degrees that morning. Serena has been preparing the classical and contemporary solo needed for the competition for quite a few weeks now and was excited and nervous all at the same time to actually perform on a stage again. Lorenzo was a last minute entry, not to the competition but on the hunt for contacts that will lead to auditions to companies , Having already competed in the prestigious Grand Prix before and doing very well he knew the founders who are also fans of his , it was great to have to extra company on our 5 hour drive.
The journey went well with a bit of fog around Milan not slowing us down we had a quick sandwich at the Autogrill and for me the oldest of the trio a couple of toilet stops, Car was great with a built in navigator which i did ignore quite a few times not wanting to leave the autostrada and find myself in the middle of a foggy corn field.
Arrived safe and sound at the hotel and made our choices for dinner i was definitely loving the idea that i would not have to cook or clean for the next few days. We got organised in our rooms and then had to venture out for the registration. Riccione is of course a seaside town and full of tourists in the summer but does have a magical atmosphere in the winter and with the Christmas lights and ice rink. Having eventually found a free parking spot for the car for the next few days all we had to do was follow girls with the turned out feet, long legs and the unmistakable posture of a classical ballet dancer to the Palariccione the congress centre where we thought the registration was to be held and we were not the only ones waiting outside, but no we were actually in the wrong place so we all left on mass and walked about 500 meters to where we were supposed to be that’s when we knew we were in for a eye opening few days.
The classic trying to stand taller than everyone else and usually in a relaxed 4th position a couple of quick rises on to the Demi pointe and yes felt like i belonged in the line
