 About the ballets:

BETWEEN THE LINES// World Premiere

Fabric art creates windows to catch a glimpse of the dancers, as the ballet goes on the windows get bigger and bigger until you can see the entire dance. It is inspired by getting to know someone and reading Between the Lines of their behaviors. The windows get bigger  as a resemblance of wisdom as time passes as a couple. Accompanied by a violin played by Isabel Epstein.

INNATE PRISMROSE// Premiered Mar 2017
“hard to stop watching….Personally, my first impression has me saying,
Arch Contemporary B[allet]rilliant!”

An eye-catching work filled with cool dance moves and shapes inspired by how the hustle and bustle of millenials’ lives can sometimes sadden us or leave friendships and relationships behind. With an inventive piano score by Award-Winning composer Matthew AC Cohen.

COLLABORATION with ASL// World Premiere 

#deaftalent poets share to the audience by performing a poem they have written, it is also interpreted aloud. Arch Ballet dancers then dance the poem. A unique ballet dance using original poems as the inspiration for movement. Do you want to perform a poem? And see it be transformed into a short ballet number? Apply here :

The Sheen Center is located at 18 Bleecker Street, between Mott and Elizabeth Street in Manhattan and
is accessible by Subway 4, 6 at Bleecker Street and B, D, F, M at Broadway/Lafayette.
