This has been a challenging year for the entire world, and it has hit the performing arts beyond anything we could imagine. The pandemic forced BalletX to rethink everything. We started by moving all of our commissions to online short and feature films and built a new digital platform, BalletX Beyond, to present films, host virtual events, and attract a global audience. We are sincerely grateful to the Alphadyne Foundation for underwriting the remainder of BalletX’s 2020-2021 Season. This generous funding from the Alphadyne Foundation enables BalletX to commission five world premiere ballets that will be created for the stage this summer, alongside 10 additional short films for BalletX Beyond. This incredible gift allows us to continue our mission to create bold, original world premiere choreography, support new artists, and expand our audience. BalletX believes in the power of dance to unite and empower communities, and because of this generous gift and the unwavering support of the BalletX Board of Directors, William Penn Foundation, Wyncote Foundation, The Shubert Foundation, J. Watkins Fund for Arts & Education, our Season Sponsors, and all of our generous donors, we are excited to make great new work in the challenging year ahead.
