“If you have the chance to sit it out or dance . . .Dance!”

Ballet Pixelle® has opportunities for dancers and crew to join this dedicated company of professional artists.  This is a unique opportunity to blend the best of artistic and technical worlds, creating performances that stretch dance and storytelling possibilities within the ballet tradition.

Ballet Pixelle® performs original ballets to music created for each ballet by professional First Life composers.  Performances are one or two  times a week at Ballet Pixelle’s Theatre. In addition to the performance schedule, each ballet requires several weeks of rehearsal.  For example, a typical rehearsal period during creation of a new ballet is 3 to 4 months with two or more rehearsals a week each lasting approximately two hours.

Ballet Pixelle is also now performing at international professional venues in Real World in art festivals, conferences, workshops, and seminars.  See information on our performances in New York City, Tokyo, Los Angeles, Berlin, Melbourne, Yokohama, and others at our web site balletpixelle.org.

Poseballs, scripted animations, or synchronization devices are not used in Ballet Pixelle® performances.  Dancers move independently, enacting steps and gestures coordinated with the rest of the cast and to the music.

Our crew work collaboratively to design, build, and script sets, props, and costumes.  Ushers greet the audience, answer questions, point out the "donation jar" and help some audience members with basic skills such as getting sound, using the avatar camera on the stage, and environmental settings.  Ushers also serve as security/advisors/consultants to reduce disruptions during performances.  Our Master of Ceremonies also greets the audience, makes comments concerning the progress of the performance, ad libs, introduces acts, dancers, and crew as well as operate sets, curtains, lights, and props.

We all have First Lives, but to be fair to the Company and the collaborative nature of our work, Ballet Pixelle® must be considered a priority.  Professionalism and serious commitment are required; a sense of humor is appreciated :-)

Qualifications:

Ability to commit, be on time, take direction, and work seriously.

Applicants should be mature in First Life and have at least six months experience in Second Life.

It is preferred that dancers know some basic ballet and theater terminology.

In addition, participants should have Second Life skills including how to change clothing and skin, transform shape including gender, move fluidly and use camera in three dimensional space and rez basic objects.

At the audition:

Come dressed in something simple such as a leotard (dancers) or a simple pants suit/dress (crew), preferably in a solid single color.  Do not wear shoes with heels.  Do not wear anything with bling.  Do not wear tutus or dress as a character.

We will audition dancers and interview crew individually, but other auditioners may sit in the audience.  Please note that auditions and interviews are not open to the general public.

You will be given animations at the audition. You do not need animations, gestures, or a HUD.  All HUDs and AOs should be removed ahead of time.

We welcome all interested dancers and crew for consideration.  Our cast and crew enjoy this tremendously satisfying and exciting creative process.

Register your interest by completing a Dancer Audition Card which can be found in the kiosk in the Ballet Pixelle® Theatre.  Crew applicants should place their crew interest(s) under "other information" on the audition card.  Place the completed Audition Cards in the other designated mailbox box, also located at the Ballet Pixelle® Theatre.

There is no pay.  There is camaraderie, applause, and the delight in making magic.

Other information will be presented at the audition, but further inquiries should be presented to Vivienne Darcy Ballet Mistress.  You may send email to vivienne.darcy@yahoo.com, leave a note for her in her mailbox at the theatre, or drop a notecard on her profile.

"Mirrored Image" Reflections of Art - Elysium and Bianca Xavorin


Bianca was inspired to create art.  The dancers of Elysium selected artworks that Bianca created, and were inspired by them to create dances.  Mirrored images of art, different mediums showing opposite imagery of the same reflection that come together in perfect unity.  Renowned SL artist Bianca Xavorin's new exhibition, Cirque de la Magie Noire, opens the last weekend of August at esteemed Paris Metro Gallery.  Elysium is honored to have been invited to dance her art in a performance that promises to pay tribute to the vision of Bianca Xavorin.  We hope you will join us.

The Dawn of Dance Classes


Free classes are being offered in how to create dances in Second Life.  There are six classes total, one a week for six weeks.  At the end of the classes, students will have created a dance with set and costume, and will present their creations in a welcoming debut show at Dance Queens "Dance Galaxy".  These classes are designed for people who are brand NEW to dance, to help them get started in this wonderful artistic medium.  These are NOT classes for experienced dancers.  They will not cover every possible aspect of dance creation, but will provide a solid foundation from which to begin a fulfilling venture into this inspiring art form.  No particular genre will be focused on, but rather a general approach to dance creation will be provided, and one that will assume students have never done this before.  A variety of expert teachers and guest speakers will contribute to the classes.  To register for The Dawn of Dance, please IM BabypeaVonPhoenix Bikergrrl and request a registration notecard, put your name on it, and return it to Babypea.  Or wait for the registration NC to be sent out in Dance Queens notices.  You will receive confirmation of your registration.  Then just show up for class, excited and ready to have FUN with dance creation and learn lots of new things!  Tell your friends, tell your family, drag them in here and LET'S DANCE!!  Contact Babypea with any questions.
