This year's theme is "On Pointé," - Ballet Manila highlights the most iconic element in a ballet performance – the pointé shoes which make a ballerina stand and dance daintily on her toes. The theme is also fitting for the ballet company’s upcoming performances as it is also a play on being “on point” which defines something to be excellent and perfect – the kind of shows that Ballet Manila consistently gives to their audience. 

According to Ballet Manila CEO and artistic director Lisa Macuja Elizalde, the decision to go with the theme is related to Ballet Manila’s Russian Vaganova style of training and dancing. 

"It defines what classical ballet is – being able to dance on pointé," -Lisa Macuja Elizalde said.

This season, Ballet Manila will be staging a thoughtfully curated line up of four shows.
