New York Theatre Ballet. Dance School, Children Dancing in NY
Mission
Dedicated to the principles of the Cecchetti-Diaghilev tradition, New York Theatre Ballet revives classic masterworks while also nurturing and producing new ballets. Through its LIFT Community Service Program, NYTB is also committed to offering studies, services, and performance opportunities to homeless and at-risk children in New York City.
Overview
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. Hailed by Jennifer Dunning of The New York Times as "a discrete little oyster in the pearl of New York dance," NYTB has earned acclaim for its restoration and revival of small masterworks by great choreographers and for its innovative ballets based on children's literature.

NYTB tours its family and adult programs both nationally and abroad, and it operates the nationally-recognized, pioneering LIFT Community Service Program. Its audiences know the Company for its theatrical expressiveness, high production quality, excellent technique, and accessibility. Its aesthetic roots are in the Cecchetti-Diaghilev tradition of the Ballet Russe. The world-renowned teacher and ballet mistress Margaret Craske, brought to the United States by the great choreographer Antony Tudor, passed this tradition on to NYTB.
History
For nearly 30 years, NYTB has produced for adult audiences dozens of contemporary ballets and classic masterworks. Its roster includes choreographers Frederick Ashton, George Balanchine, Auguste Bournonville, Michel Fokine, John Taras, Antony Tudor, and other legendary artists. This past season, as a 100th birthday tribute to her, it presented a special program of ballets choreographed by Agnes de Mille, including original dances from Brigadoon, Paint Your Wagon, Okahoma!, and Carousel.
NYTB's hour-long ballets for children began in the 1980s when Diana Byer commissioned Keith Michael to create The Nutcracker. It proved so popular among family audiences that other ballets were developed to meet the demand. This innovative concept grew into NYTB's current Once Upon a Ballet series. To date, NYTB has presented miniaturized versions of Cinderella, Carnival of the Animals, and The Firebird. Recent new works for the series are The Alice-in-Wonderland Follies and Mother GOOSE!. These entertaining and meticulously rendered productions have introduced thousands of people to the world of classic ballet.
Touring
New York Theatre Ballet tours extensively in the United States and abroad. Touring programs have the highest production values while still being affordable and accessible to audiences everywhere. NYTB also offers lecture demonstrations, pre-performance and post-performance talks, master classes for schools and colleges, and other community outreach services.
