BalletX, Philadelphia’s premier contemporary ballet company, will host a Community Day in its new home, the Center for World Premiere Choreography at 1923 Washington Avenue on Saturday, June 2 from 9:30am to 6:00pm. The company, led by Christine Cox, has conceived its new 5,000 square foot studio and administrative home as a place of innovation, creation, inclusion, and education. Community Day is an opportunity for friends and neighbors to get a sneak peek of the Center and enjoy a day full of FREE classes for all ages. Participants in Community Day will be able to register in-person for BalletX’s Fall 2018 dance class offerings, starting September 4, ahead of the online registration date July 2.
“BalletX has moved into our new home and we are thrilled to be planting our roots in our Philadelphia community. I am excited about June 2nd because we open our doors to meet our neighbors, and share in our combined passion for dance,” says Cox.
In addition to serving as the site of education and community initiatives, BalletX’s Center for World Premiere Choreography is the company’s new administrative and rehearsal headquarters, hosting choreographers and dance artists from around the world as the company continues to build its repertory of over 65 world premiere ballets.
