SundanceX is a classically based contemporary/neoclassical ballet company in the Boston area that explores choreography with founder/director David Sun, who has often witnessed the transformative power of classical ballet in his teaching and choreography. The creative process includes working in a collaborative process with dancers and musicians. Working together produces ballets that have an enhanced potency and vibrancy, understanding that this celebrates the group as well as the individual artist. This band of dancers aspires to spread the wonders and joy, the transfigurative nature of classical ballet.
What began as a summer project quickly grew into a tightly interlaced group in 2012, and by 2014 gained non-profit 501(3)(c) status as a member of Boston Dance Alliance. It has successfully performed often in the Greater Boston area, including four consecutive years in José Mateo's Ballet Theatre's Dance for the World Community in Harvard Square, Cambridge MA; in Newport, RI, at Island Moving Company's Great Friends Festival; and with Benjamin Briones' Round Table Festival 2016 in both NJ and at New York City's Gibney Studios.
