About The Event

Carole Alexis Ballet Theatre / Ballet des Amériques is honored and excited to be part of the eMeLe-K project - the annual cultural homage to Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy curated for Teatro LATEA by Rodger Taylor and Miguel Trelles.

The spirited dancers of the professional company will perform selections of original choreography by renowned and awarded choreographer Carole Alexis. The rich and eclectic repertoire is sure to delight dance aficionados, casual fans, and those new to dance.

About the Company:

Established in 2011, the professional company of Ballet des Amériques / Carole Alexis Ballet Theatre performs extensively throughout the greater New York City area as well as overseas and is committed to developing inclusive dance audiences through choreography and productions of the highest quality. The company’s sprawling and eclectic repertoire bears choreographer-director Carole Alexis’ distinctive signature and vision, reinvigorating “ballet” for new audiences and dance connoisseurs alike.

About the Choreographer:

Carole Alexis is an internationally recognized dance choreographer, director, producer, pedagogue and Chevalier de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres (Knight of the Order of Arts and Letters) of the French Republic. Born in Martinique, Carole Alexis grew up, trained and worked in Europe, Africa and the Caribbean before immigrating to the United States. In 2011, she founded Ballet des Amériques, a nonprofit organization comprising a professional dance company and a pre-professional ballet conservatory. A student of Maurice Béjart, her choreographic work is rooted in classical ballet training and tradition while drawing upon influences as disparate as children’s games, island rituals, natural phenomena, and modern urban life.
