July 6, 2012
With the closing of a successfully entertaining season, BalletX, contemporary resident dance company of the Wilma Theater, introduces their Summer Series 2012 featuring premieres and popular pieces to be performed July 11-15.
Spinning and leaping into two new debuts choreographed by Adam Hougland and Darrell Grand Moultrie and showcasing Tobin del Cuore’s 2010 Besides Myself as the finale, the series will exercise steps set to a combination of current pop songs in a kitschy 1950′s style and classical compositions while dissecting sensations that arise from being self-aware.
The Summer Series will also celebrate artist Anitra N. Keegan. Performing in every production since becoming a member of BalletX in 2007, Keegan will say goodbye to her fans and dance family as she retires at the end of the series.
Tickets are available online and by calling (215) 546-7824.
Bonus: The dancers will participate in a pre-performance Q&A session, Wednesday, July 11 and a post-performance Q&A, Saturday, July 14 with audience members.
