At the heart of Brooklyn Ballet’s mission is the creation of contemporary ballets. Our repertory reflects a multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural approach to contemporary ballet, fostering collaborations with musicians, writers, designers, other artists, and our community. Brooklyn Ballet’s repertory, while rooted in the classical idiom extends the form in unique directions.
The Ballet’s community outreach programs have proven to be mutually enriching and inform the direction of our artistic work. The Company’s ongoing exposure to street dancing and non-traditional performance settings is gradually transforming how the classical dance work is performed. The incorporation of improvisational structures and unorthodox musical scores adds rich, enticing layers to the company's expressive range. The core aesthetic from the outset, which includes juxtaposition of styles, cultures and dance forms, is the essence of Ms. Parkerson's work with the Company. This aesthetic of reaching across cultural and class divides is in the very DNA of the Company, informing its aesthetic as well as its education and community programs. The merging of all components—performance, education, artistic excellence and community outreach—are unified by the “bridging” that is Brooklyn Ballet's signature.
