Sage Dance Company was founded in Spring 2010 by choreographer and former first soloist of the Royal Ballet Company, Simon Rice. The company is classical ballet based, although the choreographic work they perform can be varied. The standard of work is high and they enjoy enhancing their performing knowledge and experiencing new dance techniques. The majority of the people who join Sage have had little or no training and sometimes no performing experience, but all share the love of dance. They are integrated into the company step by step, gradually learning all the skills necessary to become accomplished rehearsers and confident performers.
Sage Dance Company currently have in their repertoire three classical works: a thirteen minute work to the music of Brahms, a sixteen minute work to Telemann and a twenty minute work to the music of Schumann, all choreographed by Simon Rice. Additionally they perform a ten minute Merce Cunningham style work choreographed by former Cunningham dancer Fionuala Power. Olivia Lousada became the first Sage DC member to choreograph a duet piece for the company entitled ‘Hidden Twins’.
