Ballet Revolución at The Arts Centre

Ballet Revolución at The Arts Centre Image

By Kara Bertoncini

An evening at the theatre in Melbourne is always something to look forward to, especially when an international touring show comes to town.

Ballet Revolución is a dance show exploring the athleticism and finesse of classical and contemporary movement, juxtaposed with a modern-day soundtrack.

The 19 incredibly gifted dancers on stage demonstrated great versatility as their meticulous footwork, exquisite lines and extension never ceased to amaze.

The Cuban culture and infectious rhythms were brought to life and fused with number one hits from artists like Sia, Jessie J, Usher, Lorde, Beyonce, Bruno Mars, Jennifer Lopez and Rihanna.

As the dancers transitioned between duo, trio and ensemble combinations, it was evident that what they can do with their bodies defies gravity.

The balance between classical technique and jazz-funk choreography meant the Afro-Cuban rhythms allowed the dancers to express themselves sensually, all the while creating that street-carnival atmosphere.  

The sheer stamina and lack of physical limitations is what makes this show one-of-a-kind, and really challenges the audience’s understanding of traditional ballet.

Ballet Revolución will reinvigorate your passion for dance and have you on your feet by the end of the show. It is without a doubt a must-see the next time it comes to Melbourne.
