BalletX Summer Series, July 13-17

Prepare to be blown away by BalletX’s much-anticipated return to its intimate home theater, the Wilma, with a week-long performance series featuring world premieres by three of today’s brightest rising choreographic stars: Tiler Peck, Gustavo Ramirez Sansano and Jamar Roberts.

Tiler Peck, regarded as a “dance luminary” by The Washington Post and “the ballerina who can stop time” by The New York Times, is an award-winning Principal Dancer with the New York City Ballet, actress, choreographer, author and designer. She joins BalletX for her first work on the company, set to a composition by flutist and composer Valerie Coleman, who was named Performance Today’s 2020 Classical Woman of the year.

Gustavo Ramirez Sansano is the director of Spanish company TITOYAYA and the creator of works by Nederlands Dans Theater and Ballet BC, among many others. He returns after his hit BalletX Beyond film, Hernando’s Hideaway, with a work set to the music of jazz legend Bert Kaempfert and inspired by the famed saying “Love has no cure, but it is the only medicine for all ills.”

Jamar Roberts, Resident Choreographer and recently retired dancer of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, makes his Philadelphia debut with a world premiere set to the iconic music of legendary pianist and composer Don Shirley, the inspiration for the 2018 film Green Book. Roberts is a Bessie Award-winner whose choreography has been praised as “striking” and “virtuosic” by The New York Times.

BalletX offers both individual tickets and subscription packages, with a Donor Presale running Feb. 8-10, and tickets going live to the general public on Feb. 11. Tickets are available at BalletX.org or through the BalletX Box Office, 215-225-5389 x250.

BalletX and venues will adhere to current COVID protocols to ensure the safety of its guests, performers, and crew. Details are subject to change.
