Seattle's Pacific Northwest Ballet under the artistic direction of Peter Boal returned to New York City Center in February 2016 with an "All Balanchine" program on the 24th and 25th followed by a triple bill, "Contemporary Innovations", on the 26th and 27th. The latter, which I saw on the 26th, featured works by two choreographers who had at one time worked with William Forsythe as members of Ballett Frankfurt and a third piece by Forsythe himself.

The PNB dancers, superbly trained and impeccably rehearsed, gave world-class performances in all three of the evening's offerings.
