Directed and taught by Artistic Director Daniel Duell, Associate Artistic Director Patricia Blair, and faculty member Ted Seymour, Ballet Chicago's male training curriculum includes combined technique classes, men's technique, partnering, performance of world-class repertoire in major Chicago venues, body conditioning, and career counseling. Incorporating highest standards of quality execution from the simplest basics to virtuoso steps, Ballet Chicago's training develops pure, well-rounded technique. Male dancers graduate from Ballet Chicago's program with a strong performance resume of established Balanchine masterpieces and choreography by Ted Seymour, Daniel Duell, and others, gaining professional level experience at a pre-professional level through participation in the Ballet Chicago Studio Company. Artistic excellence is accomplished within Ballet Chicago's renowned atmosphere of positive reinforcement.
