Celebration in Dance is a collaboration between Singapore Dance Theatre and the Royal Academy of Dance (RAD) for a one-night-only performance. This production presents a rare and brilliant opportunity for RAD students in Singapore to perform on the prestigious stage at the Esplanade Theatre.

The RAD is one of the world’s most influential dance education organisations. RAD exams set standards in classical ballet and they are a global leader in Continuing Professional Development for dance.

SDT will be presenting Double Contrasts by Choo-San Goh and The Tarantella from the ballet Napoli by August Bournonville as well.

Double Contrasts is both elegant and classical in dance form. The two sets of dancers reflect the two solo  pianists; one set being full and youthful enthusiasm and the other more sophisticated in nature. The work has energy, wit and style, and presents many technical challenges for the dancers. It is fast, and its leaves the audience exhilarated. One of Choo San’s first ballets that stood the test of time and that is performed on a consistent basis from its premiere till now.

Bournonville ballets are represented in every major ballet company in the world and considered to be among the purest form of ballet that has ever been established. August Bournonville (1805-1879) was the greatest choreographer of his generation.
