Award-winning New York City Ballet principal dancer Tiler Peck kicks off the inaugural presentation of Artists at the Center—a new series that provides the world’s greatest artists a curatorial platform for creative exploration and collaboration.
Peck performs alongside a group of renowned dancers and musicians in a program including the world premiere of a New York City Center commission set to music composed by jazz legend and recent Academy Award-winner Jon Batiste, and works by William Forsythe, Alonzo King, and Peck herself.
