Keith Chin - Contemporary Ballet Workshop with Warm Up and Repertoire
10am-1pm, Sun 23rd Feb 2020
Keith began his early dance training at FAB, learning ballet, tap and jazz. He continued his ballet education at the Ellie Zhou Ballet Studio, a summer school with the Ajkun Ballet Theater in New York City and eventually completed an Advanced Diploma in Performing Arts (Dance) at the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts specialising in classical ballet and contemporary dance.
His professional career spanning over 10 years has taken him all over Europe and Australia, working with the West Australian Ballet, Tanzcompagnie des Stadttheaters Giessen, Dance Company Theater Osnabrück, the Danish Dance Theater as well as many other freelance projects in Europe, working with noted choreographers in the European dance industry.
He has now turned to teaching, working with companies such as the Hessisches Staatsballett Wiesbaden, Theater Lüneburg, Stadttheater Giessen, Theater Osnabrück, Mainfranken Theater, Landesbühnen Sachsen, Staatstheater Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Ballet Basel, Tanzmainz, and the Friedrichstadtpalast Berlin. He teaches both classical ballet and contemporary dance.
OVERVIEW AND MISSION
The workshop is based on ballet technique principles, but with the focus on artistry, quality of movement, individual interpretation and body awareness. The core of his mission is founded on the belief that there is an incredible artist in every person that needs to be encouraged, respected and celebrated.
It will consist of a ballet warm-up, followed by a short choreography which will be performed at the end with the opportunity for the dancers to explore their own interpretation of the movement.
