BalletX, Philadelphia's premier contemporary ballet, has produced 76 world premier ballets by 39 choreographers. BalletX reaches audiences nationwide through our performance seasons at The Wilma Theater, free Pop Ups across Philadelphia, and extensive touring. We also reach Philadelphia public school students through our in-school dance education program, Dance eXchange, and countless patrons through our engagement initiative, The X-Process. In 2018, we opened our first-ever home named the Center for World Premier Choreography, where we are finding new ways to expand the vocabulary of classical dance for more audiences than ever before.
