Modern-dance company BalletX presents two world premieres and a returning classic in its 2018 Spring Series. Darrell Grand Moultrie, whose credits include choreographing Beyoncé during her Mrs. Carter World Tour, debuts a new work that celebrates the Latin and Afro-Caribbean sounds of his native Spanish Harlem. Lovers of old-school soul and funk will dig Trey McIntyre’s homage to Motown, American Bandstand and Soul Train. And celebrated Philadelphia choreographer Matthew Neenan brings back Increasing, which he debuted at the Vail Dance Festival in 2014. The work features a live performance of Schubert’s Quintet in C Major by alumni from the Curtis Institute of Music and Yale University.
