Our focus

New Ballet. New Music. New Ideas.

New York City’s Arch Contemporary Ballet (ACB) is the brainchild of Founder, Artistic Director, and Choreographer Sheena Annalise. Presenting new ballet, new music, and new ideas are principles of ACB that are integral to the choreographic process and fulfilling their mission of continuously evolving ballet for an inclusive 21st century audience.

Artistic Process

Each ballet is choreographed and completed in silence, commissioned composers then create music exclusively tailored to the movement in all genres including neoclassical, EDM, classical, jazz, percussion, and more.


Every ballet’s concept is distinctly relevant to contemporary society often leveraging technology, visual art, fashion, and current cultural ideas to bring each ballet’s message to life on stage. Collaborations have included 3D Motion projection, American Sign Language, neuroscience research, phone apps, slow motion ink in water art, 3D Printed fashion, drones, architects, laser art, and more.
