Inaugurated in 2012 CounterPointe is focused on the presentation of new works by women choreographers for the pointe shoe. The series has been celebrated for breaking new ground expanding the ballet concert vocabulary, investigating new and historic territory, encouraging discussion and creating a forum for women, young or old, emerging or established, to take artistic risks.
CounterPointe is presented in partnership with Brooklyn Ballet.
This program is supported, in part, by public funds from the New York City Department for Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council.
