Located in New York City, Ballet Deviare is an internationally recognized 501 (c)3 contemporary ballet company founded in 2003 by Laura Kowalewski and Andrew Carpenter. Ballet Deviare was created as a vehicle to transform, enlighten and redefine the art of dance. Under the guidance of Laura Kowalewski’s choreographic vision, Laura has developed her own choreographic philosophy and contextual movement style. Her movement style is characterized by technique, alignment, breath and non-traditional musical phrasing. Laura’s works are rooted in the classical ballet tradition, while incorporating several different vocabularies of dance to create a new language. Ballet Deviare opens a new door, exposes a different side and ultimately allows all of us to connect on a much deeper level through the language of dance.
