Fadi J. Khoury and Sevin Ceviker in HOME
To better understand the intricacies of dancing in pointe shoes, choreographer Fadi J. Khoury, artistic director of FJK Dance, took private lessons from his collaborative partner Sevin Ceviker.
“As a choreographer, I felt like I needed to learn more about dancing on pointe so that I could really know what I was asking from my dancers. So Sevin started teaching me ballet in pointe shoes. It has been an exciting change, and I feel like a baby again in the world of dance. The amount of strength and perseverance that a woman in pointe shoes has to have is by far more complicated than what a man has to do standing on his own feet.”
FJK Dance begins an eight-week tour of China on February 27.
