James Sewell Ballet – First Chance Dance: Performance of BREATHE - October 29

Geared to first-time audiences of all ages, including infants, this 60-minute performance of excerpts from the company’s regular season repertoire promises to delight! There will be no intermission, and house lights will remain partially lit so that audience members may come and go as needed.

Saturday, October 29

As we continue to innovate in the field of dance – the art form of touch and breath – JSB shares a program with breath and exchange at its center. Take it in and let it fill you up.

Special guest XINA combines her dance and music savvy to co-create a piece blending art-pop and spiritual sensibilities – no formula, just boundless creativity. Michael Walters returns with brand new choreography after astonishing and energizing audiences with his JSB New Works Project ’22 premiere. Arimee Gambill, in her fifth season as company dancer, debuts a work that combines rapture with decay. What happens at the intersection of total rhapsody and utter nihilism? Rounding out the program is a restaging of Sewell’s Grey (2018), with mesmerizing moves swirling to selections from Ukrainian world-music quartet DakhaBrakha.

Regular, full-length performances on October 29 at 7:30pm and October 30 at 2:00pm.
