With its ever-expanding repertory, New York Theatre Ballet’s cutting edge programming brings fresh insight to classic revivals paired with the modern sensibilities of both established and up and coming choreographers.
Among recently featured choreographers are Pam Tanowitz and Nicolo Fonte, both having world premieres with NYTB in 2015, and whose works can be seen alongside the likes of Frederick Ashton, Merce Cunningham, Agnes de Mille, and Antony Tudor.
New York Theatre Ballet was founded in 1978 by its artistic director, Diana Byer. It is the most widely seen chamber ballet company in the United States. “New York Theatre ballet confirms its status as an invaluable company,” says Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times.NYTB has earned national acclaim for its restoration and revival of small masterworks by great choreographers and for its innovative hour-long ballets based on children’s literature.
NYTB tours family and adult programs both nationally and abroad. Its audiences know the Company for its theatrical expressiveness, high production quality, and intimate accessibility to every audience member.
