Ballet Soul Dancer


2018 Season: Tales of Africa
Coming Soon: Othello21



Ballet Soulís work is concerned with athleticism and the potential of the human body Ė exploring the human soul and the bodyís capacity for deep physicality. How the body conveys emotion, the extremeness of bodyline articulation and dynamic shifts in energy and flow are all focal points of our work.

Ballet Soulís influence in style comes from placing Africanist movement values on the classical ballet and traditional dance vocabularies. Contemporary styles are also merged with traditional African storytelling.

Though our work is often formal in its investigation of pure movement, music plays a very big part in our choreography and the use of bodies in the space. We aim to create work that is accessible to a wider audience and are devoted to dance education, particularly with increasing the representation of diverse dancers.

It is this mixing of the rhythms and the soul of the individual dancer that gives Ballet Soulís choreography its unique voice - one that celebrates the diversity and vibrancy of British and African culture.
