On Technique

Dean Speer

University Press of Florida

This chapter describes the career and teaching philosophy of Martin Schläpfer. Schläpfer was Artistic Director of ballet-mainz and, as of 2009, Artistic Director of the ballet at Deutsche Oper am Rhein Düsseldorf-Duisburg. He defines technique as control over body, mind, and emotion—the blending of the three. It means sensing and knowing how to make the interrelation of the aforementioned three units happen at a desired moment.

Keywords:   ballet-mainz, Artistic Director, Düsseldorf-Duisburg, ballet dancers, ballet teachers, dancing, teaching technique
