New York Theatre Ballet
- New York
New York Theatre Ballet was founded in 1978 by its artistic director, Diana Byer. Now in its 38 season, NYTB has been newly invigorated by a recent move to the historic St. Mark’s Church-in-the-Bowery. New York’s downtown ballet company, NYTB performs a unique repertory of chamber ballet masterpieces and new works by emerging choreographers, as well as innovative one-hour ballets for young audiences. In addition, the Company has a strong commitment to reaching children and families in underserved communities through its pioneering LIFT Community Service Program as well as in touring to smaller cities and venues where dance is infrequently performed. For over 38 years, NYTB has toured from coast to coast and internationally, its performances often introducing to first-time audiences ballets created by the great masters, as well as to its popular one-hour story ballets. NYTB’s performances, often with live music and in smaller venues, allow audiences to experience a vast spectrum of dance in an intimate and highly personal way.
