The Center for Ballet and the Arts
The Center for Ballet and the Arts at New York University is an international institute for scholars and artists of ballet and its related arts and sciences. It exists to inspire new ideas and new ballets, expanding the way we think about ballet and bringing vitality to its history, practice, and performance in the 21st century. The Center is designed to accomplish two things. First, to bring to the art of ballet new ideas and the full resources of a major research university. Second, to bring ballet into the university as a serious subject of study and research – to define it as a field in the history of culture.
