NEXT STEP, Pacific Northwest Ballet’s annual choreographers showcase, gets a shake-up this year, as original danceworks spill off of the McCaw Hall stage and out onto the grounds of Seattle Center! NEXT STEP: OUTSIDE/IN will feature a cornucopia of new choreography created in collaboration with the Seattle dance community in addition to the traditional premieres of works produced by PNB company dancers and set on the Professional Division students of PNB School.

The evening begins outside at 6:00 pm with free, rotating performances of three danceworks: New works include a solo dance created by Donald Byrd and performed by PNB company dancer Christopher D’Ariano, and a major extravaganza in the Kreielsheimer Promenade fountain choreographed by Miles Pertl and performed by over 40 dance students from PNB School. NEXT STEP: OUTSIDE will also feature an encore performance of Noelani Pantastico’s Picnic, which premiered in the summer of 2017 at the Olympic Sculpture Park. Food trucks and carts from Frankie & Jo’s, Lumpia World, and Roll OK Please will add to the festivities.

The shindig then moves inside at 7:30 pm for the NEXT STEP: IN portion of the night, with six premieres by PNB choreographers Guillaume Basso, Nancy Casciano, Christopher D’Ariano, Cecilia Iliesiu, Amanda Morgan, and Dylan Wald. Select works in NEXT STEP: IN will be accompanied by Seattle Youth Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Conductor and SYSO Music Director Stephen Rogers Radcliffe. The evening will also include pop-up performances by The Purple Lemonade Collective, a post-show Q&A with the choreographers in the Nesholm Family Lecture Hall, and will conclude with a dance party in the Grand Lobby, featuring DJ Famous.

Some say Next Step is THE highest energy performances to take the McCaw Hall stage all season long, so don't miss it!
