About

Newly led by former American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Julie Kent, the Washington, DC-based company presents stunning technique, impressive range, and iconic contemporary works heralding the group’s “elegant new era” (Sarah Kaufman, The Washington Post). The company makes its first appearance at the Pillow since 1980 with Jiří Kylián’s thrilling Petite Mort, Alexei Ratmansky’s spellbinding Seven Sonatas, and Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s absorbing Sombrerisimo.
