We close our season with Signature Series, an always unforgettable evening made up of three works by three superstar choreographers, sure to please everyone. Emmy winning and Olivier-nominated choreographer Jennifer Weber, also known for her choreography of Disney’s Zombie 2, returns with our first ever hip-hop ballet, While You Were Gone. Originally created on Tulsa Ballet for The Celebration in May of 2021, While You Were Gone broke the boundaries of what a typical ballet encompasses, creating a brand-new type of dance. This program will also feature a World Premieres by choreographer Katarzyna Kozielska PLUS the return of Alexander Ekman’s hilariously entertaining Cacti, a piece that features 16 dancers creating rhythms together that will have you laughing out loud.
