In light of not being able to welcome audiences, Ballet BC has introduced a new way to connect with them for 2021. Backstage with Ballet BC is a new video series bringing audiences into the rehearsal studio. The biweekly series will feature interviews with Ballet BC dancers straight out of rehearsal and long time supporter David Allison, combined with never-before-seen studio footage.
The first episode is out now. In it David Allison speaks with Kirsten Wicklund about working in the arts during a pandemic, professional bubbles, and making the most of a tough situation. The premiere episode of Backstage with Ballet BC also includes a clip of the Ballet BC artists rehearsing Sharon Eyal and Gai Behar’s Bedroom Folk.
Watch Backstage with Ballet BC now on the Ballet BC YouTube Channel then stay tuned for more episodes to get more unique access to the performers, rehearsals and performances.
