Top of The Lake

Classic ballet can get a bit dull. But contemporary companies like New York-based Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet have proved the future of the art is anything but. Blending athletic movement with world-class choreography, Cedar Lake pushes the possibilities of movement, sans pointe shoes.

The company boasts one of the most diverse repertoires in the dance world and will bring award-wining Swedish choreographer Alexander Ekman’s new work, Tuplet, to the Valley. The company’s Scottsdale première will also include Hofesh Shechter’s Violet Kid, a dark but eye-catching piece, and Crystal Pite’s Grace Engine, a thrilling work full of tension.

Cedar Lake Contemporary Ballet will perform at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, January 30, at the Virginia G. Piper Theater at Scottsdale Center for the Performing Arts, 7380 East Second Street. Tickets range from $29 to $59. For more information, visit or call 480-499-8587.

Thu., Jan. 30, 7:30 p.m., 2014
