NAC Presentation

Aspen Santa Fe Ballet's bold company vision – top choreographers, groundbreaking works, and virtuoso dancers – embodies the expansive spirit of the American West.

Making their NAC debut, ASFB performs a stunning program of new works including Last by Alejandro Cerrudo (the creator behind Hubbard Street Dance Chicago’s gorgeous One Thousand Pieces), a breathtakingly romantic work set to dramatic music by Henryk Górecki.

Square None, by prize-winning young dance maker Norbert De La Cruz III, is a work of smooth and sensual fluidity, with neo-Baroque costumes and quick, intricate choreography set to both contemporary electronica and glorious arias by Handel. ASFB is “a breath of fresh air!” (The New York Times).

“Aspen Santa Fe Ballet… really contained the “wow” factor audiences look for. All the dancers showed extreme expertise and artistry.”
