Admission is FREE! New for this season, Artistic Director Luis Dominguez is creating an engaging new series to explore new music and choreography for an up-close experience. Many of the presentation will be scheduled during the LexArts Hop. Presentations will be short works intended for audience of all ages.
Lexington Ballet will be performing a new work for the LexArts Hop called Your Journey Awaits at Somepoint to the music of Drummond Dominguez Kincannon and Ethan Gustavson. This Somepoint Sound music was composed for video games. It is a perfect vehicle to create moods and textures for a virtual reality accessed through dance.
Casey Myrick and Victoria Stocker will be presenting a new work that premiered at the 2018 Lexington Pride Festival. Mr. Myrick's original choreography is set to Adam Crystal's beautiful Dakini Movement III composed for the TV mini-series Flesh and Bone.

Artistic Director Luis Dominguez invites you to sample an eclectic and slightly edgier fare. In addition to presenting some unseen contemporary works, Dominguez has invited 3 young choreographers to create short pieces, giving form to the newest voices in dance. The set will develop as the performance progresses. Painters Augustin Zarate and Enrique Gonzales will create mural like paintings as the dances unfold.
Ayako Hasebe Lloyd will direct dancers from the Lexington Ballet Ensemble in Our Blue Hearts scored by a composer from her native Japan, Joe Hisaishi. This work is inspired by the blue stained-glass hearts that hang in the Lexington Ballet studio windows as a memorial to a past student.
Casey Myrick has set a piece to the music of Sufjan Stevens called Anxious Desires. Inspired by a Buddhist concept that anxiety is simply unfulfilled desires, this neoclassical work explores different types of anxiety, and how they work simultaneously to fulfill our desires. It is modern yet grounded in classically based movement.
Alexandra Orenstein introduces UnderTones, a multilayered work that is musically music driven. It is set to an excerpt from Keith Jarret's solo improvisational piano concert entitled the Lausanne Concert. The score is flowing and melodic in nature, allowing the building and layering of choreography, resulting in an abstract approach to creating organic movement for each dancer.
Nightflight, choreographed by Luis Dominguez, is inspired by the music of Drummond Dominguez-Kincannon and Fernando Delgadillo. A collaborative piece, developed by Luis and Nancy Dominguez is a pas de seul for Ayako Hasebe Lloyd to music by Johann Sebastian Bach.
