Each year, the New Choreographers Initiative holds an intensive three-week process to create fresh, cutting edge new dances. NCI Discovery 2014 will showcase four new ballets created through this program. Artistic Director Molly Lynch invited four choreographers of note, as well as sixteen professional dancers from ballet companies across the country, to participate. This evening will debut the results to the public. This year's choreographers are Barry Kerollis, Gabrielle Lamb, Philip Neal and Garrett Smith. The evening also offers an opportunity to hear the choreographers talk about their concepts and ideas, and for the audience to participate in the discussion. Learn More

Seats were last row balcony, but they were still great, not a bad seat in the house. Performance was overall pretty good. Don't expect Baryshnikov, but enjoyable nonetheless. Second half is better than the first, so don't leave at intermission!
This full-length, traditional production is choreographed and directed by Festival Ballet Theatre’s Artistic Director Salwa Rizkalla, and features a cast of professional dancers and more than 100 Southern California children.
