S.F. Ballet School Commissions New Work

Share

Shaun Amyot, who teaches contemporary repertoire, improvisation technique, and musical theater at Canada’s National Ballet School in Toronto, has been commissioned to choreograph a new work for the San Francisco Ballet School.

Amyot has danced with Nederlands Dans Theater and Ballett Frankfurt and has appeared on Broadway in Ragtime, Annie Get Your Gun, Chicago, and Cabaret. His Improvisation AI09A was performed last November at the Assemblée Internationale, a week-long student choreographic festival hosted by the National Ballet School.

Lola de Avila, associate director of the San Francisco Ballet School, saw the piece and invited him to create a work for her school. The currently untitled piece will debut during the school’s annual spring performances May 26 to 28 at San Francisco’s Yerba Buena Center for the Arts. For tickets, visit www.sfballet.org/balletschool.
