We Take Pride in What We Do


From the Innovators of Contemporary Ballet.

Under the artistic direction of Master Choreographer Dwight Rhoden and the legendary Desmond Richardson, Complexions continues to lead the way with our unprecedented approach to Contemporary Ballet. We were founded in 1994 with a singular vision to reinventing dance through a groundbreaking mix of methods, styles and cultures.  To date, we’ve presented an entirely new and exciting vision of human movement on 5-continents, over 20-countries, over 20-Million television viewers and well over 300,000 people in live audiences.

Yesterday We Imagined Tomorrow.

We represent the most diverse and technically sound, contemporary ballet company in the World with our foremost innovation being that dance should remove boundaries and not reinforce them. Whether it be the limiting traditions of a single style, period, venue, or culture, Complexions transcends them all, creating an open, continually evolving form of dance that reflects the movement of our World—and all its constituent cultures—as an interrelated whole.

Today We Live IT!

The result of our deep commitment to our craft, we’ve graced the stages of the country’s great venues, including the Joyce Theater, Lincoln Center, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Mahalia Jackson Performance Arts Center, the Paramount Theatre, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion and the Winspear Opera House. Internationally, we’ve appeared at major dance festivals including Italy’s Festival of Dance, the Isle De Dance Festival in Paris, the Maison De La Dance Festival in Lyon, the Holland Dance Festival, Steps International Dance Festival in Switzerland, Łódź Biennale, Warsaw Ballet Festival, Kraków Spring Ballet Festival, the Dance Festival of Canary Islands/Spain, and Le Festival des Arts de St-Sauveur/Canada as well as additional tour dates in Asia, South-America and Australia.
