BalletX at Longwood Gardens
June 12 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm$27 – $47
As Philadelphia’s premier contemporary ballet company, BalletX unites distinguished choreographers with an outstanding company of world-class dancers to forge new works of athleticism, emotion, and grace. The resident dance company of The Wilma Theater, BalletX begins with Darrell Grand Moutrie’s Vivir, celebrating the culture of Spanish Harlem.
They then transition to the emotionally-stirring Gran Partita by Jorma Elo, inspired by film noir classic Touch of Evil.
The performance ends with Lil Buck’s Express, which combines elements of street dance with classical technique.
