Dances from Napoli
SINOPSIS ITEM/NOTA PROGRAM/
ITEM SYNOPSIS/PROGRAM NOTES:
A pure classical ballet in the style of “Swan Lake” and “Giselle”, this ballet was first performed over a hundred years ago in Denmark by the Royal Danish Ballet and is still danced by this Company today and by many ballet companies worldwide.
“Napoli” is ballet in an Italian style with Italian folk dance and the music of tambourines blended with ballet steps.
Our dancers will perform the third act of the ballet and all the steps they will dance are from the original choreography and not changed or simplified. These same steps are incorporated in the training syllabus. They are difficult, a great deal of jumping is involved, needing physical strength and intelligence to remember the complicated sequences.
