A repetiteur is authorized to teach and rehearse choreography in the absence of the choreographer. He or she may be invited to teach or rehearse a work at a dance company on behalf or in place of the choreographer, if the choreographer is not available or is no longer alive. A repetiteur is considered an expert on the work of the choreographer. Repetiteurs are focused on making sure that the steps are done precisely, and that the mood the piece is brought out in the way in which the dancers express themselves. Many 20th Century choreographers have established trusts and appointed conservators—hand-picked dancers who have intimate knowledge of particular ballets—as repetiteurs of their works.

The Sarasota Ballet is privileged to work with repetiteurs representing many of the world’s greatest choreographers, including Sir Frederick Ashton, George Balanchine, Antony Tudor and Kenneth MacMillan.
