Ballet: reimagined, reinvented, reimagined.
NYC’s Arch Ballet (A|B) is the brainchild of Artistic Director and Choreographer Sheena Annalise. Presenting new ballet, new music, and new ideas are principles of A|B that are integral to the choreographic process and fulfilling their mission of continuously evolving ballet for the 21st century audience.
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.
Each ballet is choreographed in silence using Annalise’s trial and error process and Arch Ballet Technique. Music genres from Electronic Dance Music to neoclassical bring the choreography from studio to stage.
