First time seeing this company. Such energy and skill in a mostly younger ensemble. Classic movements with very modern choreography. Highly recommend

Attn East Bay Locals: This is not your grandma's night at the ballet. Company C combines the beauty of classical ballet with stage theatre, the mesmerizing movements of a Cirque-du-Soleil-style show, and a little Led Zeppelin. Well worth seeing.

**__Edge and Entertainment 


Susan Jaffe 

Weather One (World Premiere) 

Former American Ballet Theater star Susan Jaffe takes exhilarating classical technique beyond its boundaries with a world premiere set to the music of Weather One, one of the first movements of a string sextet by Michael Gordon that was inspired by the chaotic scheme of weather patterns. Made possible in part by a generous grant from the Diablo Regional Arts Association. 

Charles Moulton 

Nine Person Precision Ball Passing 

Part dance and part living puzzle, Nine Person Precision Ball Passing is a taut and riveting exploration of the finer points of movement. 

Yuri Zhukov 

__Railroad Joint 

__Zhukov’s Railroad Joint was a hit of Company C’s 2013 Gala performance, and this expanded version will now take its place on the main stage. The superbly athletic dancing is set to a trance-like score that combines electronic music with train sounds. 

Charles Anderson 


__An audience favorite in 2013, Anderson’s signature movement essay to Ravel’s iconic score completes the program.
