Elements Ballet trains its dancers and develops its work according to artistic director Mike Gosney’s unique philosophy of dance, based on the four classical elements. Each represents a major facet of dance: earth for physicality, air for focus, water for freedom, and fire for expression. Gosney has used this approach to revolutionize the way dancers study, rehearse, and create new work. It is this fresh interpretation of ballet that Elements Ballet draws on to develop contemporary movement, serving as the basis for mixed repertory concerts, site-specific pieces, original story-ballets, and outreach programs.
