The Wilmington Ballet returns to the Milton Theater with an eclectic visual feast of engaging NEW works that span a multitude of dance genres, inspired by the spirit of rebirth and renewal.

Academy of the Dance student, and former Executive & Artistic Director Victor Wesley founded the Wilmington Ballet in 1981, to be the professional performing arm of Delaware's premier school of Classical Ballet, The Academy of The Dance. Performing as the Wilmington Ballet, an uber talented selection of highly skilled and engaging dancers performed a repertoire of original, and restaged classical ballets, and iconic modern dance works that displayed range and versatility of its Artistic Director, and company dancers.

"We are intentional about celebrating our versatility; we are eager to retain our classical roots, as well as to discover and develop a new creative voice that reflects our evolution and creative growth, and that compels us to expand our realm of movement, in order to communicate more effectively" - Benjamin Sterling Cannon,

Wilmington Ballet / Academy of the Dance Executive & Artistic Director.
