New Ballet Ensemble’s Springloaded

New Ballet Ensemble’s Springloaded captivated audiences this past weekend with a powerful repertoire honoring the essence of humanity and a child’s right of passage into adulthood.

Seamlessly fusing the dance forms of New Ballet’s professional and student artists – Ballet, Flamenco, African and Hip-hop – Springloaded honors tradition and celebrates the promise of youth. The program featured beautiful animations of Barber’s Knoxville: Summer of 1915 and Dances in the Canebrakes by Florence Price, while ushering in bold new mixed-genre works choreographed by Noelia Garcia Carmona, Elizabeth Corbett, and Robin Sanders.

With a President’s Committee Award from Michelle Obama, and Kennedy Center ovations for “New Moves, Symphony + Dance,” New Ballet Ensemble & School brings together professional and student artists from the Memphis community through an astonishing intersection of dance forms – Ballet, Flamenco, African and Hip-hop. Acclaimed by New York Times critic, Alastair Macaulay, “New Ballet” celebrates equity and inclusion, leaving audiences wowed and saying, “This is Memphis on stage!”
