Ballet Pixelle® is the first performing ballet company in the virtual global community Second Life®.  Says the Company's founder, Inarra Saarinen, “As artistic director of the Company since its inception, I have enormous pride in Ballet Pixelle.  Our goal is to investigate and explore the interaction and intersection of physical and virtual dance and blended realities.  We are excited to celebrate the future of dance.  We are dancing into the digital future!”

Members of Ballet Pixelle come together from all over the world, including Japan, Europe, and North America. Animations are created by Inarra Saarinen and put into dance phrases.  There are no artificial synchronizing devices and the dancers truly perform dancing with each other and the music.  Each performance is truly live and unique, and takes advantage of the characteristics of Second Life to extend the art of the ballet in new directions.
