Three choreographers, three companies and three world premieres for the price of one! Dance St. Louis kicks off the season with its very own commissioned production, New Dance Horizons. Dance St. Louis brings nationally renowned choreographers to St. Louis, pairing each one with a local professional dance company to create distinct world premieres.
MADCO performs a new work by Roni Koresh, an Israeli-born choreographer and founder of Philadelphia’s Koresh Dance Company who blends ballet, modern and jazz, and has earned a reputation for highly technical and emotionally charged work.
Choreographing since the age of 14 and dubbed a “prodigy” by the press, the impressive Brian Enos, former Houston Ballet dancer and Hubbard Street choreographer, collaborates with Saint Louis Ballet.
And, as a first time participant in New Dance Horizons, The Big Muddy Dance Company performs a new work by the dynamic and accomplished Katarzyna Skarpetowska, a native of Warsaw, Poland, Julliard graduate and current dancer with the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company who has worked with the likes of David Parsons and Robert Battle, and had her choreography performed by professional companies across the country.
