Current Repertoire

Ballet 5:8’s repertoire consists of a mix of classical, contemporary and neoclassical works, encompassing both abstract and narrative styles. Some of our ballets work great in church settings and are created with a Christian audience in mind. Other pieces in our repertoire were created with a wider audience in mind and a more conversational intention. Summary information on each work is included below. Please see our booking information page if you are interested in hosting a performance.
