New York City Ballet MOVES presents dynamic works from the company’s vast repertory. Performed by a rotating selection of NYCB dancers, including principals, soloists, and members of the corps de ballet, each program features live music played primarily by musicians from the NYCB orchestra.

New York City Ballet is one of the foremost dance companies in the world, with an unparalleled active repertory of more than 150 works — most of them created for NYCB — many of which are considered modern masterpieces. The company was established in 1948 by choreographer George Balanchine and arts aficionado Lincoln Kirstein at the City Center of Music and Drama, and quickly became known for pure neoclassicism, which resonated with modern audiences. In 1949, Jerome Robbins joined the company as associate artistic director and, with Balanchine and many guest choreographers, created a varied repertory that grew each season. Balanchine served as ballet master of NYCB from its inception until his death in 1983. During his tenure, he choreographed countless works and created a company of dancers known for speed and musicality. In 1964, NYCB moved to its current home at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater (formerly the New York State Theater), where it grew into one of the world’s great dance companies. Now under the direction of ballet master in chief Peter Martins, the company has more than 90 dancers, a 62-member orchestra, an official school (the School of American Ballet) and an annual 23-week season in New York, the longest home season of any dance company in the world. Widely acknowledged for its enduring contributions to dance, NYCB is committed to promoting creative excellence and nurturing a new generation of dancers and choreographers.
