Meet the Magic Man… Dany Kapp.
When you leave the Twisted Tango show at 8 PM, at noon the next morning the studio is ready for a Brown Bag and Ballet performance, and then at 7 PM the theatre is set for Seven Deadly Sins. He often does this magic solo as all the available techies in town are busy for Spoleto.
Dany Kapp is Charleston Ballet Theatre’s production manager, set designer, the man who slaves away tirelessly to make the technical magic happen. all year long. It is his set design for Seven Deadly Sins and his high tech metal stage for Twisted Tango . The Michigan native holds a degree in marketing, but turned his keen ability as problem solver into building for theatre.
If the dancers are the soul of Charleston Ballet Theatre, Dany is the heart. He pumps away tirelessly so that they can be free to perform without technical hindrance. He shows the kindness and respect to each stagehand, dancer, designer, and choreographer that encourages total collaboration and pride. It is my honor to work alongside such a happy, considerate colleague and friend.
