Director Molly Lynch invites four noted choreographers to participate, as well as sixteen professional dancers from ballet companies across the country. NCI is a southern California project with national influence. In its first four years, NCI has helped 16 choreographers to develop new works. A dozen of the pieces begun here have gone on to be premiered or developed further and performed elsewhere in the U.S. and abroad.

It’s a mind-expanding excursion into the world of dance.
