In response to these most chaotic moments in life, this work is in honor of community, inclusion, and divine resilience. The dancers of BalletX, Ryan Lott, Michael Korsch, and Martha Chamberlain Stiles are key collaborators to this work, and I am grateful for their dedication and artistry.

“[Beautiful Once] is back to the ballet basics: beautiful partnering, clean lines, symmetrical patterns.”
THE PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER

“[The dancers] move fluidly and harmoniously against long, lush musical chords composed by Ryan Lott.”
THE DANCE JOURNAL

“Gates packs this work with solo, duet and ensemble sections that take full advantage of the technical artistry and dynamic drive of this troupe.”
