The show opens with “Excerpts from Don Quixote.” It will include sections from the best-loved classical ballet, to be performed by all class levels of the school. as a finale, the Grand Pas de Deux will feature Ballet Manila Principal Dancer Rudy de Dios who will partner a yet unnamed senior student of the school.

The Four Elements of Life will be the pervasive theme of Part II of the PSBXXI: Integrally Classical, at the CCP Little Theater on 3 June, 6:30 PM, culminating the nine-week long Summer Intensive 2k15.
It begins with a piece on the Air element, choreographed by Judell de Guzman, former Ballet Philippines Principal Dancer. With her strict Pilates grounding, a classical and contemporary integration is introduced for a fresh approach to cutting space.
Osias Barroso, Associate Artistic Director of Ballet Manila then poses neo-classic challenge to the school’s advanced girls pointe work capabilities. The piece takes off on the element Water.
A second Water element creation is created by Francis Jaena, former artist of Singapore Dance Theater and Ballet Manila. He will dwell on explorations on the theme using the modern dance language.
Feet meets the ground in a pulsating movement to awaken spirits from down under as woven into a piece that focuses on the Earth element. This will be choreographed by our long-time TapJazz Faculty Susan Decena.
PJ Rebullida, Guest Contemporary Dance Faculty, uses the Earth element also for his own contribution. He is a Filipino danseur fresh from his performance sojourn to Europe.
Finally, the Fire element sparks choreographer Geri Francisco, Principal Dancer and Resident Choreographer of Ballet Manila to travel through time and space.
