NEXTsteps, featuring new ballets created just for The Washington Ballet by emerging and acclaimed choreographers, reflects the voices of our time. Championing the relevance and advancement of dance in the 21st century, NEXTsteps supports the evolution of ballet and the dancer, and celebrates the evolving beauty and resonating power of our art. With works by Brett Ishida, Jessica Lang, and Mthuthuzeli November, energy and inspiration will abound from the studio, to the stage, and into the audience.
For the run of NEXTsteps, STC will require that all patrons provide proof of vaccination to attend any performances or events. In addition to audiences, STC has mandated COVID-19 vaccinations for all performers and theatre staff. Please visit our Health and Safety page for full guidelines about providing proof of vaccination at the theatre.
Only performers and people invited onstage for talkbacks will be unmasked. We ask that attendees remain masked while within our venues, including during performances, unless they are eating and drinking in designated lobby areas. STC is committed to the safety and wellbeing of everyone in our spaces, and we are monitoring the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and will make adjustments as needed. Thank you for your understanding.
