Bard at Bell Works Festival Continues this Weekend!  CHECK OUT THE LATEST NEWS!

This past weekend, we kicked off our first performances of The Bard at Bell Works! We wanted to thank everyone who came out this weekend — we were overwhelmed by your support. The Festival continues this weekend! 

Gabriel Chajnik choreographed A Midsummer Night’s Dream back in 2018 for AXCBT’s first season. Reviving this ballet for The Bard at Bell Works fills us with joy for our organization's growth and our future in the arts.

Some of our original cast members that performed Chajnik’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream back in 2018, performing together again in 2021!

Chajnik’s excerpts from his original West Side Story were postponed in April 2020, so it was also bittersweet to premiere this work over a year after the initial global shutdown. We are very grateful you experienced this momentous event with us. We could not have done this without you and your support!




Check out our AXCBT dancers performing Chajnik's West Side Story this past weekend.
