It all began innocently enough in July of 1518 in the town of Strasbourg. As the townsfolk went about their usual business of contracting incurable illnesses, a woman began to dance in the street. This might not sound too strange, but keep in mind that the age of people dancing unabashedly to their MP3 players in public, was still some 450 years away.
Following on from their successful 2017 Grand Audition, D&D Art Productions is running a summer intensive ballet masterclass in Barcelona. The ten day training program will start on the 17th of July and finish on the 27th. The programme is open to 12 – 20 year old ballet students.
The hard work of organizing this year’s Grand Audition has brought about another hugely successful event. In case you’re not familiar with the Grand Audition, the event offers young dancers the chance to take part in a single audition for a number of different ballet companies from around the globe.
This weekend, the Dance Worldcup Spain (DWS) event will be held at Burgos. From the 17th to the 19th of February, young dancers will compete for a position in the Spanish national team. Dinamica Ballet have partnered with DWS and are providing our PINA and ISA portable ballet barres.

The ancient Greeks created gods that personified their natural world. The sea was represented by Poseidon, love and beauty by the goddess Aphrodite and the sky by Zeus. They prayed and made sacrifices to their gods and the tales from their mythology have persevered to the present day. But our practices have evolved and we no longer beg deities for good fortune. So what is the modern recourse for someone seeking an improvement in their health and wellbeing?
How do you feel after a workout? Ouch? Phew? *sob*? Zzzz? I think I fall somewhere between “phew” and “zzzz”, a combination of relief and exhaustion which doesn’t particularly bode well for my motivation to return to the gym. But workouts don’t need to leave you this way.
I don’t think I’m the only one who experiences a yearning for satisfaction that ultimately seems unattainable. I used to believe that personal and professional success would fulfil the feeling of inner emptiness; that achieving my heart desires would bring me happiness.
