New York Theatre Ballet was founded in 1978 by Diana Byer. It's the most widely seen chamber ballet company in the United States. Hailed by The New York Times' Alastair Macaulay as "an invaluable company", New York Theatre Ballet is dedicated to performing contemporary and classic chamber ballets at affordable prices for all audiences, locally, nationally and internationally. NYTB has earned national acclaim for its restoration and revival of small masterworks by great choreographers including Frederick Ashton, Merce Cunningham, Agnes De Mille, José Limón, and Antony Tudor, and for its innovative 60 minute ballets based on children's literature. For thousands of young people NYTB performances are their introduction to ballet. NYTB also provides training at its Ballet School NY which follows the Cecchetti syllabus. NYTB's LIFT Community Services Program provides tuition-free ballet classes and other vital help for productive learning for at-risk and homeless children.
New York Theatre Ballet's BARK! IN THE PARK will run on Saturday, February 23: 1 pm and Sunday, February 24: 11 am, 1 pm & 3:30 pm.
