The philosophy of Mystic Ballet’s artistic fact of existence is through its TIC technique.
Idiosyncratic artistic ideology utilizing an unorthodox TIC technique, creates a fine bond of conceptual artistic articulation and public engagement. TIC favors freedom of action for individual over collective. TIC formula: Balance, athleticism, an emotional state or reaction – motion throwing back by a body or surface of light, or sound without absorbing it = one HUMAN one ARTIST in 7 billion.
“Watch some of the best dancers in the country perform live within an intimate setting.” (Carley Patrone, CBS New York)
“Top-Notch Ballet” (The New York Times).
“Dancers from the Mystic Ballet in Connecticut transformed Goran Subotic’s highly aesthetic contribution into movement” (Von Elrich Muller, dance critic for NortseeZietung, Germany).
“On stage its dancers are like gods who have the power of movement, precision in steps and rhythm, perfection in silhouettes” (Yaosca Reyes for Hoy, Managua, Nicaragua).
“The uniqueness of Mystic Ballet is reflected in its artistic approach and the incredible talent of its young artists that allow the works to be intimately understandable to the audience. Every movement stems from a strong sense of passion entwined with human impulses and instincts” (A. Nicolic for Tanjug/Mondo, Serbia).
The Company has toured and its works have been seen throughout New England, New York, Germany, Serbia, Nicaragua, Japan, and Brazil.
Mystic Ballet’s TIC technique has been taught at workshops – Young Artist Development in New York, London, Paris, Milano, Frankfurt, Taipei, Osaka, Tokyo, and Sydney.
