HCM CITY – The classical ballets Serenade and Bolero will be performed at the HCM City Opera House on August 19 and October 19.
The "Ballet with Tchaikovsky and Ravel" programme will feature French dancer Chloé Glemot, a teacher at the HCM City-based Dancenter Studio since 2013.
Glemot was trained at the Paris Opera Ballet School between 1996 and 2003. She worked as a professional dancer for the American Ballet Theater in New York, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens in Montreal and English National Ballet in London.
In 2006, she completed teacher training at the National Dance Centre in Paris. She has also taught ballet for children and adults at conservatories and schools in Paris.
The programme at the Opera House will include French choreographer Julien Guerin’s ballet Dépaysement, based on the music of Chopin, Satie, Faure, Beethoven, Albioni and Giazotto.
Guerin began studying dance at the La Rochelle Conservatory in France when he was nine years old, and completed training at the National Superior Conservatory of Paris for Music and Dance.
In 2001, he joined the Junior Ballet and then the Atlantic Southeast Ballet in the US state of South Carolina.
After earning a degree as a ballet teacher from National Dance Centre in Paris in 2005, Julien joined several ballets, including the English National Ballet and the Ballet of the National Opera of Bordeaux.
He has created and choreographed ballets such as Somina Vertigo and Beaudelaireans Souls.
