Roxey Ballet's Healing Arts Initiative 

Stories of Triumph Over Breast Cancer 

Pop Music Stage

Discover the Strength and Resilience of Breast Cancer Survivors


Join us in exploring the extraordinary journeys of individuals who have faced the challenges of breast cancer with courage and resilience. Our integrative, multimedia performances celebrate the strength of these survivors through the transformative power of art and nature. Through their personal, physical, and emotional trials, these women found support from fellow survivors, families, and friends, embracing the profound changes this disease brought to their lives, bodies, and spirits.


Each performance is a unique testament to the empowering stories it represents, yet their shared triumphs create a narrative that unites us all. Originally developed through interviews with 22 remarkable women, choreographer Mark Roxey, along with the songwriting team Robert Maggio and Matthew Hardy, used music, dance, and spoken word to capture the essence of the survivors' lives and stories.


Our journey began in 2017 when Roxey Ballet first performed "The C-Word," originally titled "WE vs C: Personal Stories of Triumph Over Breast Cancer," in partnership with the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton Foundation at the Grounds for Sculpture. The project's overwhelming success led to a repeat performance in June 2019, where we performed to sold-out houses at our former home, Canal Studios Theatre.


Due to high demand, we continue this healing arts initiative, integrating new stories and collaborating with various service organizations that support survivors. Our work extends beyond performances, offering workshops, outreach, and support to the community. 


Our healing arts project has thrived thanks to partnerships with esteemed organizations such as Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital, Hamilton Foundation, D&R Greenway, Grounds for Sculpture, and the Breast Cancer Resource Center and many more.
