The 2018.19 season will bring to our stage highlights from previous seasons, important modern masterworks of the 20th century, a refreshed full-length classical favorite and an evening that supports rising choreographers who will propel ballet forward into the 21st century.

Our season will include performances at the Kennedy Center Eisenhower Theater and Harman Center, and we will continue to present our beloved production of The Nutcracker at the historic Warner Theatre, showcasing the talents of many children from our school.


TWB Welcomes: An evening of celebrated guest artists from the dance world performing with our company at the personal invitation of Artistic Director Julie Kent in a program of past and present season highlights.

Contemporary Masters: Continuing our “Masters” theme, we present works from iconic American modern dance choreographers Mark Morris, Merce Cunningham, and Paul Taylor that display their unique contributions to American dance.

The Sleeping BeautyCalling on the depth of the experience of Artistic Director Julie Kent and Associate Artistic Director Victor Barbee, they will re-stage and contribute additional choreography in a production of this ultimate classic, highlighting the growing talent within our company and featuring dancers from our school.

Three World Premieres: Celebrating the creative process, our annual evening of new works that supports the artistic development of both choreographers and dancers and satisfies our audience’s passion for TWB ingenuity.
