Description Ballroom Remix pulls apart ballroom dancing. Typical ballroom dance patterns and movements are remixed into a dense parallel version. The piece uses ballroom dance in an unpredictable way, shaking the conventions.

The piece gradually peels off external factors from ballroom dance; practiced facial expressions, glitter and additional eyelashes. What remains is movement, emotion, connection and meaning. The piece unravels the dancers’ kinesthetic skill while revealing humanity and vulnerability.
