Led by dance icons Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson, Complexions Contemporary Ballet exhilarates audiences with their singular reinvention of dance and contemporary ballet. With a rich Alvin Ailey lineage and a cadre of 16 stunning dancers, Complexions has been hailed as a “matchless American dance company” by the Philadelphia Inquirer. The company performs WOKE, set to songs by DJ Logic, Kendrick Lamar, Lil Wayne and others, and For Crying Out Loud, with music from U2’s latest album Songs of Surrender

Companies like Complexions are game-changing: they’re forging a path for what ballet can be instead of what it historically has been.
