This online workshop will be given by company dancer Ermanno Sbezzo, assisted by Eden Solomon. Participants will learn an excerpt from the latest choreography of the company, Approximately Close, created by Sbezzo and inspired by the limitations of the pandemic. The excerpt taught is a very physical moment of the piece, to the music Himmelfahrt ( J. Peter Schwaln, Eivind Aarset, Martin France, Tim Harries).
The workshop will allow participants to move freely and with dynamism. The choreographic work will be adjusted so that participants can follow the movements from a distance, in the comfort of their home.
Ermanno Sbezzo has been dancing with the BJM since 2019 and is from Italy. He received his professional training at the Balletto di Toscana in Florence, Italy and at the École Supérieure de Danse de Cannes Rosella Hightower. Before joining Les Ballets Jazz de Montréal, he was a member of Ballett Pforzheim and Pfalztheater
