After I saw the newspaper article, I could not resist looking up the YouTube video of Lady Gaga – The ballet. The sound track wasn’t too great, but the dancing was very nice.

Royal New Zealand Ballet dancer Jaered Glavin‘s short choreograph for six dancers to Lady Gaga’s song Bad Romance puts classical ballet steps into a new setting. The dancers execute well and it is a nice bit of fun.

The clip got enough attention that Jared was interveiwed on Campbell Live and the six dancers got to dance the piece live on national television. The TV sound track is better, and the roving camera work give you a different perspective on the piece.

I think this piece is part of the Company’s professional development programme. In the past it has produced such crowd pleasers as Koo Koo Ka Choo – by Catherine Eddy and Brendan Bradshaw; which made it onto the playbill of Tutus on Tour 2009. So I look forward to Tutus on Tour 2011, where this piece will be a little more polished – the workshop only had 12 hours to work the piece up.
