Join us at Union Market for an explosion of creativity in unexpected settings, as Philly-based BalletX, one of America’s most interesting dance companies, performs a series of short pop-up dance performances throughout the Union Market campus over a two-hour period.

Meet in front of Union Market at noon to receive your map and marching orders, and begin a scavenger hunt-like musical experience. Enjoy a series of breathtaking contemporary dances set to the music of celebrated indie-rock band Beirut.

Since its inception in 2005, BalletX has presented 59 world premieres by over 30 diverse choreographers from around the world, prompting The New York Times to write that Christine Cox, the co-founder and artistic and executive director of BalletX, “has good grounds for pride.”
