The X-Process is our audience engagement initiative, currently consisting of Conversations with the Artists, a pre-show Q&A with BalletX choreographers and collaborators on opening night of each performance series at The Wilma Theater, and the Artist Spotlight Series, an open rehearsal and panel discussion with choreographers at the Center for World Premiere Choreography.
Dance eXchange, our in-school outreach program, emphasizes dance as a means to promote self-confidence, acquire valuable life skills, and establish personal standards for excellence. It is currently offered at four schools in the Philadelphia School District, and works with 3rd and 4th grade students. Instructors participate in a weeklong training residency with the National Dance Institute prior to the start of the program each year.
In 2015, with support from the Wyncote Foundation, BalletX launched the Choreographic Fellowship. Each season, the program pairs an emerging artist with an established choreographer to create a world premiere on BalletX at The Wilma Theater in Philadelphia. Buffalo, NY native and SUNY Purchase graduate Nicole Caruana has been selected as the 2020 Choreographic Fellow.
