James Sewell Ballet
James Sewell presents an updated hypothesis in polyrhythmic movement to the multi-textured music of local talent Dosh. The new work will be the culmination of Sewell’s research via a residency at NYU's Center for Ballet & the Arts.
NYC-based Gabrielle Lamb, an accomplished performer with Les Grands Ballets Canadiens de Montreal and Morphoses dance companies, continues her upward momentum as a choreographer with new work that will examine spaciousness and unruliness, all the while preserving a commitment to form.

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.
