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
