NEXTsteps, featuring new ballets created just for The Washington Ballet by emerging and acclaimed choreographers, reflects the voices of our time. Championing the relevance and advancement of dance in the 21st century, NEXTsteps supports the evolution of ballet and the dancer, and celebrates the evolving beauty and resonating power of our art. With works by Jessica Lang, Mthuthuzeli November, and a third choreographer to be announced, energy and inspiration will abound from the studio, to the stage, and into the audience.
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.”
