BalletX at Irvine Barclay Theatre

January 19, 2023

Featuring three West Coast premieres, including Tiler Peck's “Umoja” (meaning “joyful” in Swahili), the diverse and innovative BalletX is a contemporary ballet experience unlike anything you've ever felt before. The renowned dance company will perform at Irvine Barclay Theatre on Jan. 24. 

According to Peck, Umoja is based on unity and community and is what the world needs now. With an eclectic repertoire and exuberant dancers, this Philadelphia-based company is blazing a path of creativity and innovation across leading stages, including The Kennedy Center, The Joyce Theater, and Jacob’s Pillow. 

Since its founding in 2005, BalletX has produced over 100 ballets by 60 choreographers from across the globe, a record “few companies can match” (The New York Times). Its original choreography expands the vocabulary of classical dance, tapping into the energy of life, in all its passion, drama, and joy. 

Irvine Barclay Theatre is located at 4242 Campus Drive, Irvine, California 92612 adjacent to UC Irvine.
