New York City Ballet

BALLET

"George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein formed New York City Ballet with the goal of producing and performing a new ballet repertory that would reimagine the principles of classical dance. Under the leadership of Ballet Master in Chief Peter Martins, the Company remains dedicated to their vision as it pursues two primary objectives: 1. to preserve the ballets, dance aesthetic, and standards of excellence created and established by its founders; and 2. to develop new work that draws on the creative talents of contemporary choreographers and composers, and speaks to the time in which it is made."
