New York Theatre Ballet was founded in 1978 by Diana Byer, who served as artistic director for more than forty years. “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.
For forty years, NYTB has produced dozens of classic masterpieces and contemporary ballets for adult and family audiences. Its roster includes dances by Frederick Ashton, Merce Cunningham, Agnes de Mille, José Limón, and Antony Tudor. NYTB has appeared with The New York Pops at Carnegie Hall to sold-out audiences and has performed at dance venues such as Danspace Project, Jacob’s Pillow, Kaatsbaan International Dance Center, and New York’s City Center.
