Classicism for the Next Generation
WHO WE ARE
XAOC Contemporary Ballet is a New York City-based neoclassical ballet company founded by choreographer Eryn Renee Young in 2010. The name XAOC (pronounced zay-ock) is derived from the Greek ‘χαος,’ which means ‘chaos’ and implies explosive creation. It is meant to portray the spirit of the company as they move ballet into the future, while maintaining strong ties to classical form.
XAOC operates under the belief that there is room for ballet to evolve into the 21st century, led by women with a vision of inclusivity, generosity, inventiveness, spirit, humanity, and love.
