BalletX, Philadelphia's premier contemporary ballet company, unites distinguished choreographers from around the world with an outstanding group of dancers to forge new works of athleticism, emotion, and grace. The company has been featured at the Vail Dance Festival, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, and The Joyce Theater to name a few, and was hailed as "top 10 of the year in dance" by The Boston Globe in 2016. Under the direction of Christine Cox, BalletX has commissioned over 60 world premiere ballets by 35 different choreographers. BalletX will present a diverse program from some of today's leading choreographic voices for the company's return to The Joyce Theater’s Ballet Festival.
The Joyce’s Ballet Festival is presented with generous support by John & Margaret Falk and Susan & Greg Pappajohn. Lead support provided by the Rudolf Nureyev Dance Foundation. Special support provided by First Republic Bank.
