Spring Series 2019
Mar 6-17

Spring Series 2019 features 3 new works by choreographers Lil Buck, Nicolo Fonte and Katarzyna Skarpetowska.

BalletX presents the East Coast Premiere of Lil Buck’s Express, originally co-commissioned by Damian Woetzel for the 2018 Vail Dance Festival. Combining ballet and a style of street dancing performed in sneakers called Memphis jookin, Lil Buck’s Express features music by Jon Batiste of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

Nicolo Fonte returns for his third BalletX premiere, following Beautiful Decay (2013) and Beasts (2015). Fonte’s new ballet Steep Drop, Euphoric features music by Ezio Bosso and Ólafur Arnalds, and will have its World Premiere on BalletX at the Vilar Performing Arts Center in Beaver Creek, CO on Feb. 9 before returning to Philadelphia for Spring Series.

Katarzyna Skarpetowska is BalletX’s 2019 Choreographic Fellow, selected by a panel of dance experts, including Nicolo Fonte. “I loved the breadth of movement ideas in her work,” said Fonte. Skarpetowska’s World Premiere with BalletX is inspired by Cy Twombly’s 2005 painting Untitled, and features music by Vivaldi and Adrian Klumpes.

The Choreographic Fellowship is made possible by generous support from David Haas and the Wyncote Foundation.
