Ballet Appreciation Series:
Coppélia

The Spanish Dance Variation Workshop

14, 21, 28 August 2022

Intermediate/Advanced Level
2.30pm - 4.00pm

Written by E.T.A. Hoffmann, Coppélia tells a story of the mysterious dollmaker Dr Coppélius who owns a beautiful life-sized mechanical doll, Coppélia. The mysterious girl sitting on the balcony of Dr Coppélius’ house catches the eyes of a village young man named Franz who is engaged to Swanilda. However, Franz does not realise that Coppélia is a doll whom the toymaker is trying to bring to life with a magical spell. Swanilda decides to masquerade as Coppélia and plays along with Dr. Coppélius’ spells. Love triumphs over all in this comedy of mistaken identity and the finale is a joyful celebration of the lovers’ wedding.

 

Join us for the Ballet Appreciation Series: Coppélia Variation Workshop and get inducted to this enchanting and lighthearted comic ballet. The workshop includes a technique class and a study on The Spanish Dance variation from Act II. 

 

On the last day of the workshop, you will be given the opportunity to perform the variation and be filmed for personal keepsake. There will also be an optional Zoom performance for your family and friends.

By the end of the workshop, you will:

  1. Gain a better insight about Coppélia;

  2. Add a new variation to your existing repertoire;

  3. Get connected to a community of like-minded balletomane;

  4. Develop a keener eye at your next Coppélia ballet performance in the theatre.

 

This workshop is targeted to teen and adult learners. If you need advice on whether you are suited to join the workshop, please reach out to us via WhatsApp at 8861 0430 or studiobyraquelyeo@gmail.com.
