We are so happy to be featured in the Bâle en Français, with an interview about Inside Ballett Theater Basel. Thank you for taking the time to speak with us and helping us to tell our story.
Personality. Physicality. Like a sponge, ready to learn and to work. Hungry. To complete yourself not only as a dancer, but also as a person. I always say its pretty easy these days to find good dancers, but not so easy to find good people. -STEPHEN DELATTRE – Delattre Dance Company

Lisa and I are so proud to present a exhibition for a good cause!!! Contemporary art artist, Pedro Martin Rojo, is a guest at the Braswell Arts Center. Powerful, colorful, expressive – the Spanish artist uses every color that one can imagine. In preparation for his exhibition during the Art Basel week, he presents his work in the large space of the Arts Center and paints a large format painting especially for this event, live before the public.

Check me out in the kids newspaper in Basel! –Armando Braswell ist ein Balletttänzer aus dem Bas- ler Ballett-Ensemble. Er ist in sehr armen Verhältnissen in New York aufgewachsen und hat sich dann in seiner Jugend «heraufgetanzt». Wir von der Bebbi-Kids- Redaktion haben ihn getro en und interviewt. Zusätzlich durften wir ihm bei seinem Training zuschauen.
YEEEAAA!!! Our childrens program lives! We were worried that we would not have enough support to make this happen. Now with the Basellandschaft Bank stepping in as a MAIN SPONSOR we are sure that we can at least get it going. They believe in what we are doing and are not afraid to stand with us in the beginning stages.
The Braswell Arts Center Artist Residency Program will offer a professional arts space to artists, to create, rehearse and perform in Basel. A fresh initiative, offering development and performance opportunities while providing support for emerging or established artists. In collaboration with Basel-Stadt, Basel-Land, corporations, foundations and the public, we hope to create a mentorship through free rehearsal and performance space and providing resources and support.
This year as a part of the KLEE exhibition in Basel ( A cooperation with the Fondation Beyeler ) I was asked to present a work of mine at the Theater Basel Foyer stage and speak about abstraction in dance. I presented a work I made for the the four apprentices of the company called “Duet Duet”. Thank you Pavel for a great experience!
Der New Yorker Armando Braswell hat eine spannende, aber auch tragische Lebensgeschichte. Seine Mutter stirbt früh, der Vater ist drogenabhängig. Den armen Verhältnissen in New York entkommt er nur dank seinem Hobby, dem Tanzen. Heute lebt er in Basel – und gehört zum Ballett-Ensemble des Theater Basel.
This year I returned to the Dance Alps Festival in Austria. It was so nice to be back with those passionate dancers. It was a great experience. This year I had the honor of working with Mallorcan artists MAGNETIKA while I was there. It was such an experience…. look out for our next collaboration in Basel! Here is some more information on the work:
Hello Everyone! I just wanted to pop in and say again, Thank you to all of the donors for your donations and support. We have raised over 35,000CHF in 15 days and that is incredible. So many people have stepped up to support our campaign for our new dance floor and we are very grateful. After a small waiting period, the dance floor finally arrived yesterday. And it looks great…
Nice to be back at the Zurich Opera House for the Migros Kulturprozent Talentwettbewerbs. I know I say this every year, but… the kids are getting better and better. It was nice to see some familiar faces and some new ones also. Thank you to Richard Wherlock and the Migros team for having me. Photographer Miriam Elias documented the competition beautifully.
This year I had the pleasure of working with Amanda Bennet and the Ballet School Theater Basel for another great production. This year I choreographed a performance for the “International Conference of JURA. There were about 400 participants representing 73 countries. The dancers were fantastic! A good group.
Ballettänzer Armando Braswell hat es dank Begabung und Durchhaltewillen aus der Armut geschafft. Heute tanzt er als Solist am Theater Basel. Seine Kindheit in Brooklyn hat er nicht vergessen und unterstützt sozial benachteiligte Kinder. Zwei Videos zeigen ihn als Ballet- und Jazztanz-Lehrer.
