BalletX, currently celebrating its fifth season as the resident dance company of Philadelphia’s renowned The Wilma Theater, will be heading on the road to New York City and beyond in 2012.
The students of Andrew Jackson Public School in South Philadelphia were the inspiration for a BalletX world premiere, choreographed by co-artistic director Matthew Neenan and set to a score by Robert Maggio, during the company’s November performance series.
BalletX Summer Series 2011 marks its season finale with six performances July 20 to 24 at the Wilma Theater, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
BalletX continues its free public series, Inside the Mind of a Dancer, an interactive lecture-demonstration for youth and families, with “Explore Your Imagination!” on April 16 from 2 to 2:45pm at The Wilma Theater, 265 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia.
BalletX, the resident dance company of The Wilma Theater in Philadelphia, joins artistic forces with The Wilma for the first time to premiere Proliferation of the Imagination, an inter-disciplinary production combining ballet, spoken word, and live music.
The Philadelphia company BalletX will be bringing its signature brand of redefined classical dance to California in January.
