ARCH CONTEMPORARY BALLET
@ARCHBALLET | #ARCHBALLET
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.
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, phone apps, slow motion ink in water art, 3D Printed fashion, drones, architects, laser art, and more.
Throughout the year insights are offered into the creative process by ‘Process & Preview’ studio showings at City Center and Mark Morris Dance Group. Seasonal and gala performances culminate at The Sheen Center and touring performances across the globe include Paramount Theatre, Tempe Center for the Arts, and more.
Arch Contemporary Ballet is committed to creating accessible performances. All of our ballets can be modified for an Autism or ASL Deaf Friendly audience. Dancers are sensitivity trained and basic ASL training. Visit our Arch for Autism Outreach Program.
