2017 Season

Roots and New Ground 2

Brooklyn Ballet is thrilled to present Roots & New Ground 2 at The Actors Fund Arts Center June 8-11 & 16-18, 2017.

As a multidisciplinary dance company rooted in ballet and inspired by the vibrant cultural diversity of both Brooklyn and the art of dance, Brooklyn Ballet continues to present artists working in an array of movement forms. These artists dig deep—honoring traditions and exploring new connections and contexts.  This season’s premieres and revivals include ballet, urban vernacular, early tap and rural percussive, buck dance, authentic jazz and modern dance.
