Rehearsals of "The Solitude;" by Jason Andrew

This is the first year since 2007 that Brooklyn Ballet has invited a guest artist to hold the position of Resident Choreographer for the Company’s performance season.

Brooklyn Ballet has always made it a point to collaborate with great musicians and provide live music in performance as often as we can.

We are overjoyed that this year we're collaborating with a new artist at every performance of our world premiere of Quilt/One Night Stand!

Name: Izabela Szylinska
Age: 24
Neighborhood you live in: Bushwick

We're still hard at work on the technology components of our Brooklyn Nutcracker costumes, premiering in the Snow scene at our 2014 season (April 3-13).

Check out our prototype all lit up in a trial run after rehearsal, modeled by Brooklyn Ballet Youth Ensemble dancer Alexia Chan:

We are busy preparing for our 2014 season, and our dancers look amazing!

Here's a peek behind the scenes of rehearsals for Snow from The Brooklyn Nutcracker, and more.

In its mission to Brooklyn-ize The Nutcracker, a holiday classic, Brooklyn Ballet brings in street and modern dancers, infuses African dance styles and sets its multicultural, intergenerational cast on Flatbush Avenue. Building The Brooklyn Nutcracker in installments allows Lynn Parkerson to explore new innovations and collaborate with new artistic partners during Brooklyn Ballet's home performance season.
