Founded in 2005 by Christine Cox and Matthew Neenan, BalletX unites distinguished choreographers with a company of world-class dancers to "forge new works of athleticism, emotion, and grace." With a focus on presenting world premiere choreography, BalletX has expanded its repertory to include over 60 new works by internationally renowned choreographers, including Trey McIntyre, Nicolo Fonte, Jorma Elo, Olivier Wevers, and more. The company has performed at such venues and festivals as The Joyce Theater, the Vail International Dance Festival, and Jacob's Pillow.
BalletX commissioned Finnish choreographer Jorma Elo, resident choreographer of Boston Ballet, to create Scenes View 2. Set to music by J.S. Bach, the work featured dark, atmospheric lighting and showcased Elo’s signature choreographic style that combines sharp, angular movements, dynamic athleticism, and classical ballet vocabulary. Marking BalletX’s first commission by an international choreographer, Scenes View 2 premiered during the 2006 Philadelphia Fringe Festival.
