Chicago's New Bold Dance Company


Elements Contemporary Ballet cultivates an appreciation for ballet by producing original, distinctive, and dynamic performances that are relevant and exciting to today’s audiences.

Co-founders Mike Gosney and Joseph Caruana have built a repertory that includes work by up-and-coming choreographers from world-class companies such as Houston Ballet, BJM Danse, and Cullberg Ballet and collaborative works with stellar Chicago arts organizations like Surge (with Aerial Dance Chicago) and The Sun King (with Baroque Band). The company has presented concerts at Chicago’s Athenaeum Theatre and Skokie’s North Shore Center for the Performing Arts, and has participated in festivals such as Dance St. Louis’s Spring to Dance, Palm Desert’s Dance Under the Stars, the Chicago Cultural Center’s Spin-Off 2014, On the Prairie, and Dancebridge, and The A.W.A.R.D. Show! at Dance Center of Columbia College. Elements also offers an original youth outreach production through Urban Gateways titled The Evolution of Ballet.
