NEW BALLET

By Gen Horiuchi

Music by Toya

Horiuchi’s choreography is a masterful blend of fluidity and precision, mirroring the improvisational nature of jazz while maintaining the grace and poise characteristic of classical ballet. Through intricate sequences and expressive movements, the dancers convey the raw energy and emotional resonance of the blues, transporting audiences to the vibrant world of jazz clubs and smoky dance floors.

Tokuya’s musical finesse was captivating, and his composition added an extra layer of depth and richness to the performance. His mesmerizing rendition of the “St. Louis Blues” showcased his versatility and mastery across genres, further enhancing the emotional resonance of Horiuchi’s choreography.
