Grace. Power. Artistry.
Arch Contemporary Ballet was founded with a bold spirit and innovative vision to create new ballet, new music, and new ideas for an inclusive 21st century audience.

ACB challenges classicism by taking a cutting-edge approach to partnering. Along with male artists, women are often paired together on pointe as partners.
