With works by emerging and acclaimed choreographers Silas Farley, dancer and choreographer with the New York City Ballet, Dana Genshaft, former San Francisco Ballet soloist and returning TWB choreographer, and Stanton Welch, Artistic Director of the Houston Ballet, energy and inspiration will abound from the studio, to the stage, and into the audience.
Premiering June 2021. Dates and venue TBA.
Julie Kent on NEXTsteps:
“My favorite part of NEXTsteps is the surprise of it all…that there was nothing and then something is truly remarkable. These creative choreographers walk into the studio with a germ of an idea, and weeks later, a complete ballet emerges. Our dancers have the amazing opportunity to interpret, assimilate, and create; Their footprints create the blueprint for each of these pieces. For the entire lifespan of these ballets, they began with and are defined by us. It is all just so exciting.”
