Ballet Appreciation Series:
La Esmeralda

Act I Esmeralda Variation Workshop
Intermediate Level

26 & 27 August 2023
9.00am - 11.30am

This August, join us to learn the beauty and technicalities of Esmeralda’s variation from the ballet La Esmeralda.

In 19th-century Paris, La Esmeralda follows the captivating gypsy dancer Esmeralda, caught in a love triangle between the nobleman Captain Phoebus and the hunchbacked bell-ringer Quasimodo. As the story unfolds, Esmeralda's fate intertwines with themes of love, betrayal, and the struggle for acceptance in a society filled with prejudice and obsession.

Over the 2-day workshop, you will be immersed in the story of La Esmeralda. The workshop includes a short sharing about the ballet, technique classes and a study on Esmeralda variation in Act I. Dancers will have the opportunity to learn to dance with a tambourine. The workshop will culminate in a showcase where participants will have the opportunity to perform the variation for their family and friends on the last day.

By the end of the workshop, you will:

  • gain a better insight about the ballet La Esmeralda;

  • add a new variation to your existing repertoire;

  • get connected with a beautiful community of dancers.


This workshop is designed for intermediate level dancers with at least 2 years of ballet experience.
