As part of SEPTA’s “Music & Moves” Program, Philadelphia’s premier contemporary Ballet Company BalletX will perform a first-time-ever pop-up performance at Jefferson Station on November 15. The performance will consist of seven short duets, largely choreographed by the company dancers themselves, and feature a range of musical styles, including classical, soul and pop.
“Our Music & Moves Program is growing more and more in popularity and we are so excited to have BalletX showcase their talent at Jefferson,” said Kim Scott Heinle, SEPTA’s Assistant General Manager of Customer Experience and Advocacy. “We are proud to be able to provide such stellar talent for the enjoyment of our customers, visitors and shoppers.”
The works are being choreographed by BalletX dancers Zachary Kapeluck, Chloe Perkes, Caili Quan, and Richard Villaverde. The company will also perform a work by choreographer Amy Seiwert, Artistic Director of the Sacramento Ballet, and Imagery, a contemporary ballet company in San Francisco.
Starting at 5:15 p.m., the entire performance will run about 30 minutes plus time for opening and closing remarks.
SEPTA’s Music & Moves program is a platform designed to enhance the everyday commute by connecting travelers to the diverse array of the arts in the region through performances at select SEPTA stations. The performances are free and open to the public.
