Choreographer Spotlight: 2020-2021: Juliana’s Dance!

Juliana Balsewicz

How many years have you been in the company?

I have been in the company for 3 years.

How many years have you been choreographing?

This is my first year choreographing and I am so excited!

What is your piece about this year?

This year, my dance is about depression and our safety net (our loved ones and people) around us.

How have COVID-19 restrictions affected your choreography?

Well, I wanted to do a lot of throwing people in the air and lifting, but I could not do that due to COVID restrictions.

How does your choreography connect to our theme? “Moving together while being apart”?

Yes it does, but it’s a little different. It’s similar because people always move together but their feelings and emotions can get mixed up and move to a different pace than others.
