Ballet-ex stands out for its special work in highlighting the qualities and potential of male dance. Indeed the company is formed of male dancers with different talents who nevertheless mix and blend well together. The genre is aimed at Neo-classical – contemporary. With regard to dance teaching and video dance the company has had an important part to play, and has created several Videos of its repertory and also 5 important teaching Videos, which are now widely available in Italy and Europe. “Pas de deux lessons” is the first Video guide to a Pas de Deux lesson, and the “Classical Dance lessons on Video” is the first guide to a classical dance lesson on DVD which has Italian commentary. “Pointwork lessons on Video” is the first and only Video guide of this nature entirely in Italian, “Classical dance lessons on video for male dancers” and “Classical dance for beginners” Using the medium of Videos Ballet-ex aims to spread its message, and, whilst retaining a strong classical base is still aiming for an eloquent contemporary expression which is rich in its varied influences. Its main aim is to convey present-day and universal themes and ideas by seeking ever new directions rather then relying on standard repertoire. The company also seeks to involve other artists (musicians, painters and actors) and new technology, aiming to bring Italian dance forward into the 21st Century, with awareness of current events and the needs of the audience.
