Following the success of 2015’s sold out performances, New York-based choreographer Emery LeCrone proudly presents a program largely comprised of new contemporary ballet works for the 2017 Ballet Festival. This year's program will offer expansive and emotive performances that have become a staple of Ms. LeCrone’s choreographic repertoire—and exceptional dancing by world renowned artists from the New York City Ballet and American Ballet Theatre, as well as the seasoned dancers of Emery LeCrone DANCE. Ms. LeCrone's commitment in developing works that feature live music and costume collaborations with fashion designers (which in the past have included Yigal Azrouël and Victoria Barlett) will surely be a mainstay in this program. This innovative evening of contemporary music, exquisite fashion, and unparalleled dancing is one not to be missed.
