"Swipe Left" by Sean J. Smith
Due to popular demand and in celebration of Women's History Month, we are adding "Swipe Left" to our DBDT On-Demand Collection. "Swipe Left" by DBDT veteran dancer Sean J. Smith looks at the complicated mindset of a woman desperately trying to find love in all the wrong places. The ballet was an instant hit when it made its world premiere in February 2023 at the Wyly Theatre in Dallas, TX. "The standing ovation, bursts of laughter, and shoutouts made it clear that the piece resonated with many audience members," wrote Elizabeth Myong of the Dallas Morning News. Smith wove dance, narration, drama, comedy, theatrics, and a spectrum of music clips into the work. A DBDT Instagram follower commented, “the whole world needs to see this performance!” CHOREOGRAPHY Sean J.
