Arte por Excelencias - - FRANCIA -

The en­ric­hing re­sult of this in­no­va­ti­ve pe­da­go­gi­cal ex­pe­ri­en­ce betwe­en a French com­pany, Malandain Ballet Biarritz, and the “Fer­nan­do Alon­so” Na­ti­o­nal Ballet Sc­ho­ol, that to­ok pla­ce for a we­ek at its he­ad­quar­ters in Ha­va­na, was pre­sen­ted at the mul­ti­dis­ci­pli­nary spa­ce ca­lled the Fá­bri­ca de Ar­te Cu­ba­no with three night per­for­man­ces open to the pu­blic.

The pe­da­go­gi­cal ex­pe­ri­en­ce was pre­sen­ted by mem­bers of the French com­pany foun­ded and di­rec­ted by cho­re­o­grap­her Thi­erry Malandain, ba­sed on the cu­ra­to­ri­al pro­ject of Mr. Xa­vi­er D'art­huys and the par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on of cho­re­o­grap­her San­dra Ramy.

This op­por­tu­nity allowed us to gau­ge the po­si­ti­ve of the par­ti­ci­pa­tory cho­ral event for the ar­tis­tic and et­hi­cal de­ve­lop­ment of the twenty mid-le­vel ballet stu­dents cho­sen by the di­rec­tors of the ENBFA (“Fer­nan­do Alon­so” Na­ti­o­nal Ballet Sc­ho­ol.) Their par­ti­ci­pa­ti­on in the clas­ses and re­he­ar­sals for al­most six hours a day du­ring that we­ek, un­der Wendy Fer­rer´s pro­fes­si­o­nal co­or­di­na­ti­on, one of the pri­me ba­lle­ri­nas of Dan­za Con­tem­porá­nea de Cu­ba (Cu­ban Con­tem­po­rary Dan­ce,) who te­ac­hes cour­ses of con­tem­po­rary tech­ni­que for ad­van­ced le­vels, was sa­tis­fac­tory. Two re­marka­ble dan­cers-cho­re­o­grap­hers from the French com­pany can tes­tify to this: Gi­lles Sc­ham­bert and Fre­de­rick De­berdt.
