Featured Works


Natalie Weir presents four couples experiencing human connection through the universal language of dance. A poignant summary of the stages of life and love - the eternal youth of spring, the storm clouds of summer, the tenderness of autumn and the aging of winter.


The dancers of WAB, along with Artistic Director Aurélien Scannella and Principal Rehearsal Director and Artistic Associate Sandy Delasalle, come together to create an exciting work featuring powerful solos and stunning pas de deux as we journey through one man’s reflection on his life. Crafted from incredible passion and designed to enamor.

Moment of Joy

Touch is a direct, immediate and spontaneous way of expressing our emotions. Warmth, softness, sensitivity, strength and care guide us as we are introduced into the world. Inspired during COVID-19, WAB’s Dayana Hardy Acuña and Juan Carlos Osma present an evocative performance accompanied by WAB Head of Music, Michael Brett, whose virtuosic piano playing will add depth to this moving performance.
