Show Summary Details


This chapter describes the career and teaching philosophy of Damara Bennett, Director of the School of Oregon Ballet Theatre. Bennett, who was formerly with San Francisco Ballet, defines technique as what you need in order to express the art form, whether for an abstract or a story ballet. It is also how the steps relate to other steps—what steps are connector steps. Technique is also support; it is your partner.
