Cross Connection Ballet Choreography
Cross Connection Ballet is proud to present our first choreography showcase/competition to be held June 13th2008, in Copenhagen.
Cross Connection Ballet is a group of dancers based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Our dancers hail from a collection of prestigious companies including Batsheva Dance, Bejart Ballet, Dansk Danse Teater, Leipzig Ballet, L’Opera National de Paris, and the Royal Danish Ballet.
By forming this showcase/competition it is our hope to allow new work a space to be shown, and help aspiring choreographers with an opportunity to grow. Cross Connection Ballet wishes to give choreographers a chance to present their work.
The event will be performed before a live audience, as well as a jury comprised of dancers from Cross Connection’s ensemble and invited members of the dance world.
Winning pieces will also be presented on the 14thand 15th of June in a Gala performance including dancers from Cross Connection Ballet, L’Opera National de Paris, Prague State Opera, the Royal Danish Ballet and free lance dancers.
