Spring Series 2019 features 3 new works by choreographers Lil BuckNicolo Fonte and Katarzyna Skarpetowska.

Dance superstar Lil Buck creates his first work for BalletX with the East Coast Premiere of Express, a work co-commissioned by Damian Woetzel for the 2018 Vail Dance Festival. Combining ballet and a style of street dancing called Memphis jookin, Lil Buck’s Express features music by Jon Batiste of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Lil Buck has collaborated with Madonna, Cirque du Soleil, Mikhail Baryshnikov and Yo Yo Ma.

Nicolo Fonte returns for his third World Premiere on BalletX, following the success of Beautiful Decay (2013) and Beasts (2015). Known for “explosive, athletic dance” (The Dance Journal), Fonte has created work on several prestigious companies, and is the Resident Choreographer of Ballet West and Oregon Ballet Theatre.

Fonte will mentor BalletX’s 2019 Choreographic Fellow, Katarzyna Skarpetowska, chosen from an international field of candidates to create a World Premiere on the company. Her work has been described as “a breath of fresh air” (The Dance Enthusiast).

The Choreographic Fellowship is made possible by generous support from David Haas and the Wyncote Foundation.
