Saint Louis Ballet shows what’s “new” and “next” in its annual performance series at the Grandel Theatre.  Known for its grand, classical ballets with elaborate sets and costumes, the company peels back the layers with this very special performance.

You’ll be up-close-and-personal with the dancers, who really shine in these short ballets that represent a wide range of choreographic styles. New & Next features SLB Company Dancers alongside the Trainee dancers of SLB.

Enjoy new ballets by choreographers CiCi Houston Sudholt, Sean Sessions, Christine Settembrino, and a Balanchine favorite, Valse Fantaisie.

Aquatic Reverberations

Without fancy costumes, sets or special effects, the talent and creativity of the dancers and choreographers take center stage.  Audience members are invited to meet the dancers and creative team in the lobby bar following the performance.
