Hong Kong Ballet’s 40th Anniversary Video Will Challenge All Your Preconceptions About Ballet

Hong Kong Ballet 40th Anniversary Season Brand Video Is A Colour Packed Choreography Masterpiece!

This incredible footage brings everything we love about dance and music together in a colourful visually appealing package! That is exactly what the creative design agency called “Design Army” were trying to achieve when they created this fascinating video for the Hong Kong Ballet’s upcoming 40th anniversary season.

The artists in the video are seen dancing in neon and pastel colours to Ravel’s Boléro. Featuring brilliant camera work of the dancers and beautiful shots of Hong Kong city. There is so much happening in the brilliant piece of footage, when you watch it for a second time, you’ll notice loads of things you didn’t even see the first time round. The colours, movement, music and choreography are simply stunning to watch.

What Is The Hong Kong Ballet?

Formed in 1979, the Hong Kong Ballet is a classical ballet company that combines 19th to 21st century classical, contemporary works, and newly commissioned ballets. Since 1997, The Hong Kong Ballet has concluded more than 30 tours to 10 countries in North and South America, Europe and Asia.

When ballet is perfectly in sync it is a beautiful thing to watch, but it turns out, it’s also very good out of sync. This parody dance routine is performed by ballerinas at the Vienna State Opera in Austria. The routine contains moments of “mistakes” planned into the routine for comedic effect, however pulling off this routine without any actual mistakes takes some doing! The routine is called ‘When Ballet Goes Wrong” and it is a genius piece of comedic choreography by NYC ballet master Jerome Robbins.

Ballet is a beautiful form of dance, even if it isn’t the most mainstream style, we think these two videos are proof that ballet can be for anyone!
