Complexions Contemporary Ballet

Critic's Pick Release Date: 2011-02-23

Founded in 1994 by Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson (both former members of Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater), Complexions Contemporary Ballet is considered America’s first fully multicultural ballet company. Known for a groundbreaking mixture of methods and styles that challenges nearly every preconceived notion about ballet (including costuming, which ranges from conceptual androgyny to barely there), Complexions’ primary focus is removing boundaries to create an “open, continually evolving form of dance that reflects the movement of our world.” $31, 8pm, Jo Long Theatre, Carver Community Cultural Center, 226 N Hackberry, (210) 207-7211,,
