SundanceX is a classically based contemporary/neoclassical ballet company in the Boston area, begun by David Sun to explore choreography in a process that includes working collaboratively with dancers and musicians, with the understanding that together they can produce works that have an enhanced potency and vibrancy. SundanceX offers a uniquely fresh, inspiring and diverse view of classical ballet, with the fundamental understanding on how the wonders and joy of ballet powerfully influences and transforms lives.
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 its much loved Passagio Serenata (2019) most recently at Integrarte’s 2019 Winter Showcase, produced by Carlos Molina and Erica Cornejo, in Boston’s Jamaica Plains. The 2018 Southern Vermont Dance Festival invited SundanceX to perform its contemporary ballet, Caprice (2017) in Brattleboro, which was also performed at the Green Street Studios Ballet Showcase in 2017. SundanceX has danced 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; dancing Etudes (2016) in Newport, RI, at Island Moving Company's Great Friends Festival; and Images (2015) with Benjamin Briones' Round Table Festival 2016 in both NJ and at New York City's Gibney Studios.
