If you still think of ballet as inaccessible formalist movement to stuffy classical music, you have not seen BalletX. With an inviting Winter 2014 program spanning Valentine’s Day, this is a great opportunity to make a date with dance.
Leading the program is BalletX’s first full company work by a non-company member, Joshua L. Peugh’s world premiere Valentine’s Day and company premiere Slump.
Jodie Gates’s Delicate Balance, returns to the BalletX program after premiering in 2012 at the Laguna Dance Festival in California.
Rounding out the program is James Gregg’s world premiere Head in the Clouds, which incorporates a unique style of movement that is a combination of hip hop, ballet and, modern dance.
