About the Artist
KCBC is one of Philadelphia’s premier contemporary ballet companies. Founded in 2016 by Kimberly D. Landle, the company is currently entering its 7th season. KCBC was founded on the idea of challenging the boundaries of classical ballet. The company and the choreographers try pushing the dancers’ bodies to explore movement that extends past the classical format while continuously exploring and challenging the body to venture in new directions. Klassic Contemporary Ballet Company is committed to creating work that not only engages the body, but truly tries to connect both the dancer and the audience through all emotional, mental, and physical states. Allowing our dancers to tap into their most genuine emotions and making each piece unique to them, all while studying and trying to understand current and past events. Under the direction of Landle the company is creating art that is athletic, dynamic, and emotionally charged all while staying true to the fluidity, grace, and vigorous use of technique in classical ballet.
