Experience a beautiful and raw performance as ballet dancers and boxers illuminate our common bonds with electric physicality.

“In fifty minutes my stereotypes of ballet dancers and boxers disappeared, and I saw them all only as human beings.”
— audience member —

In a divided world, search for what unites us.

The performance springs from the unusual partnership between St. Paul Ballet and Element Gym that challenges stereotypes as it bridges seemingly disparate cultures and demanding physical pursuits. St. Paul Ballet’s Artistic Director Zoé Emilie Henrot and Element Boxing Director Dalton Outlaw choreographed an interactive experience that highlights the common rituals of ballet and boxing. Their shared performance crackles with energy, blurring lines and illuminating the grace, athleticism and common rituals of ballet and boxing.
