Veronika Sardiko on the making of the Watchmaker
It is about lost time, life in a city, about people getting deep in their problems and their life passing unappreciated. People always have a choice: either to enjoy every moment or lose their peace in stress. The main character is the Watchmaker. He is deeply aware of every moment and totally enjoys the here and now. His life is mindful and fulfilled. He loves his job. He is an introvert by character, and he likes to observe the city life. He is trying to make people realise that we should value every moment and not waste our time on nonsense.
There are evil spirits, and they, like a virus, are trying to destroy harmony and peace. They are doing everything to take away people’s valuable and unique lifetime. I myself sometimes behave similarly to the characters from my ballet who are wasting time on unnecessary things. This is the major thing I don’t like about myself.
I hope working on the ballet will help me to look at myself objectively and change myself. Hopefully, it will help other people who have similar problems, too.
This piece combines classical, modern, popping, hip hop and breakdance dance styles. I am trying hard to make them be in harmony together. I hope it’s going to work.
This dance project is a mix of a different style dancers such as classical and modern dance, breakdance, popping, hip hop. I am so grateful I have them. They are so talented, devoted and hardworking people.
They have rehearsals almost every day coming after work and staying in the dance studio till late night. But I’m so happy to have in my dance programme professional dancers, too. They are so cool, unique and talented. I want to say special thanks to them for their trust in me and for being part of the project.
We have a team of 21 dancers representing various countries and parts of the world such as Ireland, Russia, Spain, France, Australia, Turkey, Japan, Poland, Lithuania and Africa.
You are very welcome to watch our performance, “The Watchmaker”, on the 5th of May at 7.30pm in the Olympia Theatre. I hope this time will not be wasted. You may get the tickets online via Ticketmaster or in the Olympia theatre in the box-office. I heartily wish you to enjoy each moment of your life.

Adult Ballet: Good for the Mind, Body, and Soul
Author Elizabeth Gilbert once said, “a creative life is an amplified life.” Ballet is an art form that definitely has the power to educate and enrich a person’s life. While painters explore the world of color, and musicians yield to melody, dancers express themselves through movement. Not just an activity for little girls anymore, ballet classes for adults are cropping up everywhere. Consider three significant ways ballet can affect your life as an adult student.
Some adults prefer to practice crossword puzzles or watch educational programs to expand their minds. If this isn’t your cup of tea, participating in a ballet class may be just the right stimulation you’re looking for. Ballet is like beautiful math—students learn to formulate combinations, coordinate steps, and be quick on their toes (no pun intended). Ballet technique provides a unique challenge that requires students to pay close attention to instructions and develop problem-solving skills. Adult ballet can serve as a wonderful refresher course for former professionals or students returning from a hiatus. Even students who have little to no prior training are in for an exciting new venture all the same.
Don’t let the pretty pink tights fool you—ballet isn’t easy. Ballet is a well-rounded, full-body workout that has many muscular and cardiovascular benefits. Using the barre for support and taking turns dancing across the floor, students learn to increase their flexibility, improve their balance and coordination, and develop greater core strength. Of course, adult ballet is designed with the mature body in mind; while students are encouraged to step out of their comfort zone and try new things, they are always welcome to modify steps, or skip certain movements altogether. If you tend to be self-conscious about your body or limitations, take heart. Adult ballet is a pressure-free zone that welcomes students of all shapes and abilities.
It has been said by many professionals and novices alike that the simple act of placing your hand on the barre can make you feel beautiful. Yes, ballet is a very graceful art form that leaves you with a sense of poise and accomplishment. After all, it was originally performed in the royal court! In an age of increasing technology and distractions, adult ballet class transports students to a time of refinement; as classical music fills the studio, students have the opportunity to connect with their emotions and reflect on what’s truly important. Not to mention, students have a chance to meet and work alongside others that share their passion for dance. Regular exposure to these artistic influences and positive social dynamics makes adult ballet class good for the soul.
Just as we need food and oxygen to live, we need the arts to nourish us as well. By taking the time to explore the creative aspects of life, such as by trying adult ballet, you will reap many mental, physical, and emotional benefits. So go ahead and take a leap (pun intended!) and sign up at MyArt Dance & Art School!
