Cincinnati Ballet announces choreographers joining the Kaplan New Works Series.

The Kaplan New Works Series puts the raw energy of contemporary ballet center stage with four world premieres at the Aronoff Center for the Arts. This year’s bold program celebrates the athleticism, strength, and versatility of the Company’s dancers. The 2018-2019 season opens with inventive works that challenge the art form and the audience.
The series lasts from September 13-23 at the Aronoff’s Jarson-Kaplan Theatre. Tickets are $66-$75 and are available to purchase online. Performance dates and times vary. Select at the time of purchase. ArtsWave Members receive discount tickets too!
Emmy-award winning choreographer Mia Michaels from the popular FOX show, So You Think You Can Dance, brings her emotional piece, “calling you.” San Francisco Ballet soloist Myles Thatcher and Cincinnati Ballet Resident Choreographer Jennifer Archibald will join Michaels with premiere works. Archibald will focus on the strength of the male dancer with a new ballet for five powerhouse men.
Furthermore, rounding out the Kaplan New Works Series will be two premieres choreography from Company dancers David Morse and Taylor Carrasco. Morse’s “Gathering,” and Carrasco’s, “Plays Well Together,” were chosen from the Cincinnati Ballet’s annual Choreography Workshop.
