NutRemix™ presented by NIKE

New Ballet’s 2023 NutRemix™, presented by Nike, was an electrifying and innovative production that took the entire family on a captivating journey with a story set on Memphis’ iconic Beale Street. At the heart of NutRemix lies New Ballet’s mission: pushing artistic horizons and making dance accessible to all.

Last year’s production came to life with the efforts of New Ballet Ensemble’s professionals and students, featuring the return of notable alumni and inaugural NutRemix cast members. Fresh off Broadway, Maxx Reed served as Creative Director, adding a fresh perspective with new elements. Globally acclaimed dancer, Lil Buck, starred as the Memphis Angel, a role he created. The Memphis Symphony Orchestra and Big Band breathed life into classics by Duke Ellington, Booker T. and the MG’s, and a remixed classical Tchaikovsky score. Dynamic choreography wove a rich tapestry of cultural influences, including hip-hop, Memphis Jookin, Spanish dance, and West African dance and drumming.

Thank you to our 2023 sponsors!
