James Sewell, one of American ballet’s most inventive choreographers, will bring his dance company to Missouri University of Science and Technology on January 17 for a 7:30pm performance in Leach Theatre of Castleman Hall on the university campus, 10th and Main streets in Rolla.
James Sewell Ballet was founded in New York City by Sewell and Sally Rouse in 1990 and moved to Minnesota two years later. The company of eight dancers performs innovative work that explores the technical boundaries of ballet.
