11 Apr Dance workshop with Les Italiens de l’Opéra de Paris
Three Rosey students who take ballet classes at school were lucky enough to have the opportunity to exercise at the barre with the amazing dance troupe, Les Italiens de l’Opéra de Paris. The warm-up session took place the morning before the troupe’s performance in Rosey Concert Hall. The exercises started at a fairly easy level, but quickly became more challenging to give our students a true taste of being a part of the ensemble.
There are 157 dancers with the Opéra de Paris, the majority of whom are French. Les Italiens de l’Opéra de Paris, who are all friends within the Opéra ballet troupe have been dancing together for about 3 years. They were extremely encouraging, helpful and friendly and it was such a pleasure for our students to meet and dance with them.
