“Hailed as two of the greatest virtuosos ever to emerge from Ailey land,” (New York Times), Dwight Rhoden and Desmond Richardson founded Complexions Contemporary Ballet in 1994. The two esteemed alumni of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater—“Desmond Richardson is one extraordinary dancer” (New York Times)— have awakened audiences to a new, exciting genre that combines athleticism, lyricism, technical training and experience, utilizing twenty incredibly trained classical and contemporary dancers.

The company’s foremost innovation is that dance should be about removing boundaries, not reinforcing 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. In the years since its inception, the company has born witness to this world that is becoming more fluid, more changeable, and more culturally interconnected than ever before—in other words, a world that is becoming more and more like Complexions itself.
Complexions has received numerous awards including the New York Times “Critics Choice” Award. It has appeared throughout the US, at major European dance festivals and in Korea, and Australia.
