The dance excerpts in this program illustrate how dance body language defines the characters in the story.

Certain ways of moving convey happiness and sadness, just as certain ones convey purity of heart and others deceitfulness. Certain movements mean the action is happening in real time, other movements signify a dream. These characterizations can be reduced right down to foot and hand movements.

Excerpts from Giselle, Swan Lake, Ariadne & Claire de Lune.
