Along with strict government advice, lockdown continues for many across the world with uncertain and tricky times ahead. With endless free online classes to the rescue to save ourselves from going insane, The House of Dior – a long-time purveyor of lux escapism and tulled fantasies, has announced it’s now streaming virtual dance lessons to offer you that same respite from home.
The house is joined by some of its favourite dancers to offer choreographic lessons and workshops and thus allow you to discover and experience this exquisite art of the body in motion. This slice of escapism provides a compelling taste of the hypnotic discipline treasured by Monsieur Dior himself – who also notably costumed the Roland Petit ballet ‘Treize Danses’.
Over the course of three instalments led by Germain Louvet, a principal dancer of the Paris Opera Ballet, Sébastien Bertaud, a Paris Opera Ballet choreographer – joined here by Stuttgart Ballet principal dancer Friedemann Vogel – and Eleonora Abbagnato, a Paris Opera Ballet principal dancer and director of the Teatro dell’Opera di Roma ballet company, (re)discover the poetic performances that connect them with Maria Grazia Chiuri.
Take advantage of this opportunity to learn how to feel and respond to the music, how to improvise and to perfect some key positions. Available on Instagram and YouTube, and accessible to all, partake in these intimate masterclasses in the comfort of home.
