Harvard Ballet Company: Community and Excellence

Harvard Ballet Company: Community and Excellence

(violin playing) – Harvard Ballet Company has been a really huge part of
Harvard for me actually. Just finding all of these dancers here in a really nice community. – I see dance as like, an outlet that I get to enjoy. I’ll often like, just go into
an empty studio by myself and just move around during the day, even if its in between classes. – Hi, I’m Ali Garber, I’m a sophomore at Harvard. – Hi, my name is Illiana Riveron, I’m at senior. – Hi, my name is Sara Chou, I am a first year. – Hi, my name is Catherine Qin, I am a senior at Harvard. – Hi, I am Anna Antongiorgi, I am a sophomore. – My name is Lia Kaynor, I’m a senior. – I’m Alexandra Caffrey, and I’m a sophomore at Harvard. – So, when I was looking at colleges, actually it was pretty important to me that I would have a good dance program. – It actually was a pretty big reason why I decided on Harvard. Just knowing there was already
a community of dancers. – The level of intensity
can definitely vary, depending on your own interest and this can be as little
as two hours a week, just coming to our weekly class, or it can also involve being in a variety of different pieces that are then shown in
our semesterly show. – What makes Harvard
Ballet Company so unique is that everyone sort of
brings something different to the table. There are so many talented dancers and choreographers with so
many different backgrounds, which I think probably is the best thing because you can learn from
so many different people. I definitely feel that being part of HBC, I’m apart of a family, were all very close to each other. I feel as if I can just go up to anyone and just talk to them about anything. – Its really warm and loving and it still has that
drive towards excellence that I think we’ve all
experienced coming to Harvard, but surrounded by this
like, nurturing environment and this commitment to creativity as well was really just such a
valuable group of people to walk into I think. – In high school, dance
can be very competitive and I feel like before coming to HBC, dance had so much pressure on it, I had to be certain way, I
had to do a certain thing. You lose a lot of the love
in that kind of environment and I think HBC was a
place where I was able to find that again because its just so supportive. – Once dancers have
spent at least a semester in the company, they can often times run or
apply to be on a board position, so their are two co-directors and there are people
responsible for the finances and the costs and everything. And then also within the company, we select student choreographers who will help us put on our shows. – Learning how to run something that like, a lot of people were involved in and learning how to make
sure things happened with the ballet company
and our shows happened and just the leadership
that came along with that has also been really important for me. – The opportunity to really
create something of your own, I think was a really wonderful experience. – Through my experience
in being the company, I think I’ve definitely made a lot of my closest
friends here at Harvard. I think its definitely given
me a lot more confidence in my own abilities, not just as an artist, but also as a leader and as a friend, and as someone who can sort of cheer lead and create and shape an entire community. – I have this love for ballet that I know will never go away. It’s always apart of me, and I think that’s the same for anybody who’s made it such a
huge part of their life. – If you’re interested

  1. I went to Harvard and I still never discovered this amazing community! Crazy to think most universities have more than 300 clubs and probably a lot of them are as intimate and intense as this one!

  2. 열정을 쉬면 (컴퍼트) 자기자신을 돌아볼수 있고 자기의 몸이 보이기 시작합니다. 그러면 무용,,, 발레…가 매우 많이 발전하고 좀더 나은 자기 자신을 발견하게 됩니다.^^!

  3. plie로 춤을 컨트롤한다. feeling을 컨트롤한다. plie를 조절하면 춤, 무용의 수명이 늘어난다.

  4. 발레할 때 bar, center할 때, 춤을 출 때 엉덩이(hip)에 힘주지 않는다. 몸이 긴장되서 춤이 망가진다^^!

  5. 오해가 없길 바래요 하바드 발레 컴퍼니 사람들이 발레를 하면서 행복해 하기에….제가 춤에 아는 것은 개인적인 단편에 불과합니다.

  6. 제 IP가 않되면 안티테제 한국국가에서 한것때문에… 아니면 미국국가에서 안티테제로 한것 때문일 겁니다. 않되면 개인인공위성 D-STAR로 하면 될 겁니다.

  7. 저는 좀 옛날식이죠. 공부도 옛날 것들만 거의 했답니다. 하바드와 관련된 공부는 책이면서 논문인 조각이란 무엇인가…. 평론가이면서 교수였던 허버트 리드 공부를 조금 했습니다^^!

  8. 하바드 춤에 관심이 엄청나군요. 대학교에 무용학과가 없다는 것은 말이 않됩니다. 에그문트 후설의 현상학도 몸에 현상학으로 귀결됩니다.

  9. 팔의 움직임. 뽀르드 브라에 신경쓰세요. 무용실력이 엄청나게 향상됩니다. 물론 시선처리도 해야됩니다.

  10. 안무를 만들때나 바,센터등 제가 만든건데 동사+that 절 로 합니다. 간단한 무용응용동작, 여러가지 예술적인 것들에도 됩니다.
    악기 기타의 테크닉 아르페지오처럼 진행하다가 대위법으로 춤을 춥니다.

  11. 미국발레 테크닉중 리벌스가 있는데 리벌스는 신체의 조율, 신체를 가다듬는것, 몸의 회복을 하는데 쓰임니다. 그런데 너무 빨리 리벌스를 하면 도리어 더욱 몸이
    긴장하게 되니 주의를 하면서 해야 합니다.

  12. 뽀르드 브라는 손, 팔꿈치에 시선처리가 상호관련되면서 합니다. 기술이 높아지면 무게중심과 관련됩니다.

  13. Think you need a perfect SAT score to get into Harvard? Think again.

  14. 근육을 짧게 쓰면 굳어지고 유연성이 떨어지고 근육을 너무 길게 쓰면 유연성에 탄력이 떨어집니다. 동문, 하버드 발레 오피스만 할 수 있습니다. 앞으로 발레 올리는 것은 다 마찬가지 입니다.

  15. 발레마임
    1.몸동작은 드라마틱 하게 한다.
    2.마음도 드라마틱 하게 한다.
    3.정신은 생각하지 않고, 몸으로 표현한다.
    4.눈은 초점을 관객에게 맞추지 않고, 자기자신에서 맞춘다.
