Two repertory favorites and a world premiere make up James Sewell Ballet’s fall performance, Dynamic Rhythms.

The intricate contemporary ballet "Moving Works," a James Sewell Ballet classic, is an explosion of music and motion. The complex movement is a dialect of the multiple coordination work Artistic Director James Sewell has been exploring for 25 years ­– wherein multiple, simultaneous rhythms (polyrhythms) are expressed through the body. Sewell’s "Appalachia Waltz," another company staple, uses Texas fiddle music as the backdrop for the expression of relationships and community.

Local choreographer Darrius Strong will collaborate with the James Sewell Ballet company on an all-new piece fusing ballet and hip hop, and weaving movement into a story reflecting on vulnerability, fight and humanity.

About James Sewell Ballet
James Sewell Ballet was founded in New York City by James Sewell and Sally Rousse and brought to Minnesota in 1993. Combining their expertise, vision, and chutzpah, they envisioned a close-knit company of dance artists willing to both challenge their physical limits and expand their notions about ballet. Over two decades later, critically acclaimed JSB performances move and delight audiences across the country. The embodiment of the original vision is a professional company of dancers performing innovative work that explores the technical boundaries of ballet.
