Promising to be a breathtaking presentation of some of the finest dancers from all over the world, BalletNOW™ is returning to The Music Center’s Dorothy Chandler Pavilion at the end of this month.  

Showcasing 24 dance superstars in three distinct performances, BalletNOW will feature international ballet sensation and New York City Ballet Principal Tiler Peck as curator. 

The three-performance program includes dancers from The Royal Ballet, So You Think You Can Dance, Dorrance Dance, American Ballet Theatre and Paris Opera Ballet.  Peck’s mixed repertoire highlights the versatility and athleticism of today’s ballet dancers and includes pieces that pair classical dancers with their contemporaries in other dance genres. See program for each night below. 

Guest curator and international ballerina Tiler Peck leads an exciting roster of dance superstars for three distinct performances. Peck brings exquisite grace, energy and unmatched artistry, from her Southern California beginnings, to her meteoric rise as one of the youngest principal dancers of the New York City Ballet. Don’t miss this new chapter of BalletNOW™ as renowned dancers push the boundaries in a mix of iconic and contemporary ballets by some of the most revered choreographers.
