Join us for Connections Fall Ballet
An eclectic collection of sure-to-inspire works.
Carousel (A Dance) • Christopher Wheeldon
Tony Award-winner (Broadway’s An American in Paris) Wheeldon choreographs this work to the music of Richard Rodger’s iconic musical—a dance that includes a love duet that is “one of the finest in contemporary ballet.” - The New York Times
Antique Epigraphs • Jerome Robbins
Inspired by classical statues of goddesses, Robbins gives audiences a poetic reverie set to the music of Debussy. Choreographed for eight women, this dance is earthy, “stunningly beautiful, and lyrically rhapsodic.” - New York Post
Wildflower • World Premiere • Sasha Janes
One of the hottest talents on today’s American dance scene, a Jacobs faculty member, and “a choreographer to watch.” - The Washington Post
Janes follows his deeply moving Saudade (2016-17) with another world premiere! Music by Gary Anderson.
Deuce Coupe • Twyla Tharp
Sun, surf, cars, and 60's dance crazes—what’s not to love about this wildly inventive and exuberant gem choreographed to the music of the Beach Boys! “A delightful and vividly American dance.” - The New York Times
