Philadelphia's BalletX Premieres Matthew Neenan's 'Right To Spring'

PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Contemporary dance company
BalletX continues its inaugural season as the resident dance company of The
Wilma Theater (265 S. Broad Street, Philadelphia) and presents the world
premiere of Right To Spring, with five shows running Wednesday - Saturday,
March 26-29 at 8 pm, and Sunday, March 30 at 2 pm. Tickets: General $25,

Right To Spring runs with no intermission.

Right To Spring is a one-hour ballet choreographed by Co-Artistic
Director Matthew Neenan. The choreography embodies the essence of winter
giving way to spring. After a long dormancy, the world reawakens and bursts
forth with new life. The collaborative work aims to capture that process:
the changing of the seasons and how we react to it, mentally and
spiritually. Co-Artistic Director Christine Cox states: "Right To Spring is
a chance for us to celebrate a time of year that transforms our soul and
allows us to explore the process of change and growth."

The music will vary from classical to rock and will feature an original
score composed, arranged and performed live by Matthew Pierce (of the Lake
Trout band) joined by band members Mike Lowry and James Griffith. This is
the first production with live music for BalletX at The Wilma Theater.
