Black Ballet Choreographers Creating

This project is spearheaded by Waverly T. Lucas II with the support of Ballethnic Dance Company Incorporated. It will provide studio space and basic resources for aspiring ballet based choreographers to explore and develop the potential of ballet choreography through fusion, narrative content, and reconstructing and utilizing movements in ways to uplift and expand the ballet experience. Each choreographer will create a work from original compositions from black musicians to be performed live.

The project will begin October 1, 2022 and conclude May 20, 2023.
