Today is finally here! I’ve been working with The Players' Tribune for the past several months on this beautiful animation project that celebrates ballet and what makes us all special and unique. Each and every dancer is equal and has something wonderful to contribute — no matter their race, body type, or heritage. There is no better time for ballet to reflect the world we live in. Enjoy!

White Christmas (1954) 🎄
Choreography and dance direction by Robert Alton, directed by Michael Curtiz, additional choreography by Nick Castle, assistant choreography by Joan Bayley & Ernie Flatt, and featuring Vera-Ellen & John Brascia.

Robert Alton is largely credited for breaking up the chorus on Broadway. His goal was to capture the character’s personality by incorporating small groups and featured solos within his numbers. He once told a reporter “I have exactly six minutes in which to raise the customer out of their seat. If I cannot do it, I am no good.” Alton’s choreographic career greatly contributed to the major Broadway hits of the 1930s and 40s.

He frequently collaborated with Cole Porter, Rodgers & Hart, and Rodgers & Hammerstein. He learned stage direction from John Murray Anderson and worked with performers such as Ray Bolger, Betty Grable, Gene Kelly (whom Alton is thought to have discovered), and Vera-Ellen. Alton would then take many of these dancers with him to Hollywood, turning them into some of the most famed film dancing stars. He was a dance director at MGM from 1944 to 1951, creating some of the most memorable Hollywood dance numbers in the golden age of the movie musical.

Our Story

Bravo is the FIRST and ONLY dance studio in Michigan with Aerial Silk training. Our students are educated to work in the entertainment industry. At Bravo, we want to steer every parent in the right direction when your child attends our performance school. We recommend every student take ballet in addition to their other classes. Technique begins in the ballet class, and from there students will find much greater success in all dance forms. Bravo offers Aerial Silk Dance, Ballet, Jazz, Musical Theatre and Tap.

(Due to the current issue of sexual exploitation permitted at dance competitions Bravo does NOT currently compete.)
