ABT Studio Company
By Debra Craine for The Times


IT’S been years since American Ballet Theatre was last in London, and likely to be years before we see it here again. So in the interim we have the London debut of ABT’s Studio Company, a small training ensemble which feeds ABT.

The 12 dancers are aged 16 to 20, and their repertoire is designed to showcase their youthful skills. For this visit to the Linbury Studio Theatre, at the Royal Opera House, the programme was enlivened by vintage Tudor and a world premiere from Robert Hill.

Antony Tudor’s Continuo (from 1971) is a floater for three couples, its delicate textures inspired by Pachelbel’s famous Canon. Tudor made it for the Juilliard Dance Ensemble, and it’s pitched just right for something short and sweet.

Review in The Guardian.

Quote:
American Ballet Theatre do not send their apprentice company out to perform classical party pieces and fossilised divertissements. Instead, they aim to showcase their young dancers in sparky modern repertory.

Review from The Observer

Quote:
To gain performing experience, youngsters either appear in grown-up productions like The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty or in graduate touring groups. The Royal Ballet School recently hosted American Ballet Theatre's Studio Company, which rehearsed in the school's headquarters before performing first in Woking and then in the Linbury Studio Theatre. These are apprentice dancers aged 16 to 20, ready to become polished professionals.
