BalletX, now in its second decade, is a Philadelphia phenomenon—a local favorite that has also acquired a national and even international fan base. Their work, a blend of classical ballet and contemporary style, includes over 60 world premieres by major choreographers that blend classical ballet with contemporary dance. Their fall season, presented at the Wilma Theater brings back this fave, a hypnotic meditation on aging by choreographer Nicolo Fonte.
