The Pacific Northwest Ballet and the Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra partner up to present NEXT STEP. You’ll find new works inside the theater by NEXT STEP’s 2018 choreographers – a few of your favorite PNB Company dancers: Guillaume Basso, Nancy Casciano, Christopher D’Ariano, Cecilia Iliesiu, Amanda Morgan, and Dylan Wald.
“NEXT STEP, PNB’s choreographic initiative, was designed with the purpose to cultivate new voices and new works. This is directly in line with Peter Boal’s vision of bringing new and interesting works to the PNB audiences. The NEXT STEP program provides studios, rehearsal time, dancers and a safe space for PNB company members who are interested in choreography to experiment and hone their dance-making skills. NEXT STEP also provides a unique opportunity for our immensely talented Professional Division students to be involved in the creative process and to have original works created on them.” – Kiyon Ross, NEXT STEP Coordinator
