YNeXT: Annual celebration performance
BalletNext & The Bedford Stuyvesant Y

On March 26th BalletNext and the Bedford-Stuyvesant Y will return to present YNEXT, an evening of dance and celebration to benefit ongoing youth arts education programs.

The performance will feature Something Sampled - the result of uniting the 400 year old conventions of ballet and the art of Flex dancing which was born in Jamaica and transported to the streets of Brooklyn ten years ago – choreographed by flex dancer Jay Donn and Michele Wiles set to new music played live by electric cellist/composer Chris Lancaster. The quartet by Michele Wiles, Ushuaia to music by H. Biber, and a special guest appearance from the “little dancers” at P.S. 54 will complete the evening.

BalletNext has entered into a unique partnership with the Bedford-Stuyvesant YMCA with the goal of promoting arts, fitness, and education to young people within the community.  Proceeds from this benefit performance will go to support BalletNext and Bedford Stuyvesant YMCA's ongoing programs in youth arts education.
