Brooklyn Ballet

Join us for a celebratory performance at King's Theatre on Monday April 27 at 8pm to re-introduce this historic landmark to Brooklyn. Brooklyn Ballet will peform excerpts from “The Brooklyn Nutcracker” as well as a short preview of pieces from our latest season “Roots & New Ground”. Other groups set to perform include Brooklyn Youth Chorus, TriBeCaStan, and Casym Steel Orchestra.

It's almost the end of our winter blues in Brooklyn as the sun begins to melt the snow and spring slowly thrives forward, giving us a new season. It's also the best part of year for us because it's the most creative time to collaborate with different artists and prepare for our spring production, “Roots & New Ground”.

Brooklyn Ballet loves broadening the work of the Company with new dancers with new strengths and experiences each season. We enjoy getting to know our newest recruits in rehearsals, and we thought you'd like an introduction to them, too.

Stay tuned for a series of introductions to our newest faces that will grace the stage this April!

Lynn’s latest choreographic journey involves multiple dance disciplines and techniques for generating movement. Kalle Laar, her friend and co-conspirator in creating art, expresses his thoughts on how they started working on their current project:

Last September, Lynn Parkerson attended a Mixed Movement event at St. Mark’s Church at the suggestion of some of her dancers. Swept away with the spirit of the evening’s dancing, Lynn found herself performing an improvised solo. Check it out here:
