BalletNext presents BalletNext 2019 Season in Partnership with The University of Utah School of Dance
7:30 – 9PM
Be prepared for a blast of fresh air when Michele Wiles’ BalletNext returns to New York Live Arts, February 19-23. Look out for the debut of a crop of new dancers hand-picked from the University of Utah’s ballet program, at which Wiles is currently a Visiting Professor. These stars-in-the-making will join Wiles, principal guest artists Amar Ramasar and others to perform two new ballets by Wiles and two ballets choreographed for BalletNext by Mauro Bigonzetti. All works are set to live music with a world premiere commissioned score by Wiles’ ongoing collaborator, master jazz trumpeter Tom Harrell, and University of Utah’s internationally acclaimed concert pianist Dr. Vedrana Subotic. Featured performance musicians also include piano recording artist and composer Luis Perdomo and internationally recognized violinist Angela Kim.
