"an invaluable company,” A. Macaulay (NYT 2010)
Description
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. (April 2010)

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 its programs both nationally and abroad. Audiences know the Company for its theatrical expressiveness, high production quality, and intimate accessibility to every audience member.

For 37 years, NYTB has produced, for adult and family audiences, dozens of classic masterpieces and contemporary ballets. 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 Jacob’s Pillow, Kaatsbaan and New York’s City Center.
