We will release those tickets as we are made aware of cancellations and at show-time.
BalletX, Philadelphia’s premier contemporary ballet company, whose dancers were named “among America’s best” by The New York Times, commissions choreographers from around the world to expand the vocabulary of dance for all audiences, forging new works of athleticism, emotion and grace. This mixed-rep program features Nicolo Fonte’s ballet 'Steep Drop, Euphoric,' which gained critical acclaim in The Philadelphia Inquirer and The Boston Globe when it premiered in the spring of 2019. Also in the evening’s program will be Matthew Neenan’s Increasing, and two short duets, Caili Quan’s upbeat “Fancy Me” and Amy Seiwert’s pensive “It’s Not a Cry.” With music ranging from Schubert to '70s soul, the program is beautiful, intense, fun, and engaging.
