James Sewell’s “New Moves” features original music by Minneapolis composer Steven Rydberg and the Zeitgeist New Music Ensemble. The famed pas de deux from the 19th century ballet “Le Corsaire” lights up the stage with show-stopping ballet pyrotechnics and JSB revisits the spooky “Grave Matters.” Finally, NYC choreographer Joanna Kotze’s “The rest of everything” receives its well-deserved main stage premiere.

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. Nearly 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 nine dancers performing innovative work that explores the technical boundaries of ballet.

Based in the Twin Cities, James Sewell Ballet studios are located at The Cowles Center for Dance & the Performing Arts in Downtown Minneapolis. Annual spring and fall JSB performances are currently presented at The Goodale Theater in The Cowles Center. JSB's annual cutting edge "Ballet Works Project," featuring new works by emerging and established choreographers, is presented at the JSB TEK BOX on the second floor of The Cowles Center.
