We are 3 dance enthusiasts behind this project, Jana G. Younes, Jens Bjerregaard & Wafa Bouti, and together we join the skillset and talent to desire and experience; things needed to suggest norms for what can one do with a performing arts company in Lebanon
We have chosen the name Beirut Contemporary Ballet to reflect first our practice that swings between the classical and the more contemporary fundamentals of dance; and second our ambition to build a full-time professional dance company in Beirut.
Beirut Contemporary Ballet plans on drawing its own path into the world of dance, by:
- Reaching a broader audience, as well as the dance lovers
- Showing dance on a technical and advanced level
- Creating current, relevant and innovative works
We have a lot happening in 2018; the movie Ghazal is ready for film festivals and in November we completed collaborations in China (See movies).
2019 is around the corner with international touring and first Beirut performances.
