New York City Ballet (NYCB) principal dancer Tyler Angle hosts a three-part Studio 5 series that explores the different ways in which dancers learn, rehearse, and perform the choreography they receive from creators of original work, as well as restagings of existing ballets. Among other topics, each discussion and performance demonstration will address the process by which ballet dancers execute work created on them by modern dance choreographers, learn existing ballet masterpieces, and allow themselves to explore and interpret dances after they have assimilated to a choreographic style.
Participating dancers for this Studio 5 event include NYCB soloists Daniel Applebaum and Lauren King, NYCB principal Taylor Stanley, and former Sleep No More performer Austin Goodwin. Susan Walters will accompany on the piano.
Studio 5 events run approximately one hour and 30 minutes.
Tyler Angle was born in Altoona, Pennsylvania, and began his dance training at the age of nine with Deborah Anthony at the Allegheny Ballet Company. He entered the School of American Ballet (SAB), the official school of New York City Ballet, full-time in the fall of 2001. In the fall of 2003, Mr. Angle became an apprentice with New York City Ballet. As an apprentice, he danced a featured role in Michel Fokine's Chopiniana, performed by SAB as part of New York City Ballet's winter 2004 season. Mr. Angle joined New York City Ballet as a member of the corps de ballet in June 2004. He was promoted to the rank of soloist in December 2007 and in October 2009 was promoted to principal dancer.
