Warsaw Ballet is a new team of Polish neoclassical and post-neoclassical * ballet dancers – it was established by former Polish National Ballet soloist – Natalia Maria Wojciechowska.

The dance team consists of both those who have completed the ballet school and obtained a diploma of a professional dancer, as well as those who chose a private-school form of dance education, reaching a high technical and artistic level which is equal to professional dancers status.

Warsaw Ballet is the first private, professional ballet company, where the dancers apart from dancing have the opportunity to deal with various assigned functions such as: the marketing and promotion, scenography, costumes or stage management as well as the other aspects.

 

* What is a neoclassics and a post-neoclassics in the ballet?

 

George Balanchine - the famous choreographer in the 30’s of the twentieth century began to change classical dance, that is neoclassical (also known as a new classics) by introducing more flexibility in the port de bras (Literally ‘carriage of the arms’), making a team dancer almost equal to a soloist, introducing also an overdrawn ballet posture (the body posture), as well as introducing other means of expression that allow greater flexibility in interpretation.

After many years of development of the neoclassical trend - it is worth mentioning neoclassical followers as F. Ashton, J. Neumeier, J. Cranko or Petit and the others – a new trend has been created providing the neoclassic trend with new elements on the border of athletics, contemporary, modern, or other types of dance, that was and still is an extremely challenging task to achieve by the dancers. A Filmmaker like Forsythe and Dawson expected and still expect the dancers to have an incredible power, strength, endurance, stretching abilities, speed, awareness, creativity, self-reliance and imagination. Forsythe during his numerous lectures at many universities, make people understand that the dancers are primarily athletes, and sometimes some of them also artists.

Although it is a distinctive trend, nevertheless, it has not been named and described until the present day. In 2014 Natalia Maria Wojciechowska set up the Neoclassica Foundation, which as its name indicates supports the development of neo-classical dance and its subsequent variations. Madam Wojciechowska described this new trend and named it post – neoclassical trend. As every act of creation, it was - and still is – an ongoing process. Natalia at first created trainings for dancers who wanted to be able to meet the demands of the twenty-first century choreographers, then she added it to neoclassical dance classes, and only then she distinguished it from the other dance trends and named it post - neoclassic.
