Complexions Contemporary Ballet

CELIA Visiting Artist
Recognition Year: 

COMPLEXIONS was conceived in 1994 to blend the uniqueness and the diversity of artists of different cultures and races and to celebrate a shared passion for dance. Inspired by social and political issues as well as human relationships, the company's repertoire is deliberately contemporary and accessible to a wide range of audience tastes.

Founders Desmond Richardson and Dwight Rhoden, along with their New York City-based company of dance thoroughbreds--there are roughly twenty in the company, but guest artists swell the ranks as needed--have awakened audiences to a new, exciting genre that combines the best of athleticism, lyricism, and technical training and experience.
