PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – If you’re looking for something different to do in Philadelphia, BalletX is gearing up for their fall series.

So what exactly is BalletX?

“We’re Philadelphia’s premiere, contemporary ballet,” explained artistic and executive director Christine Cox. “We make new ballets that are really fun and different and incredibly moving.”

She says anybody with a passion for the arts should experience BalletX.

“It’s important that we come together and share in something unique and special,” Cox said. “We make all new work, so usually you come in and you have no idea what you’re going to see. But you will see beautiful dancers that are classically trained, doing new work by choreographers from all over the world.”

The two-week fall series begins Wednesday night, November 29 at the Wilma Theatre on South Broad Street with “Beautiful Decay.”

“You have to see this ballet,” Cox said. “It’s about the aging process and it’s one of my most favored, treasured ballets.
