Critically acclaimed Arch Ballet presents an evening of bold contemporary dances choreographed by Sheena Annalise.
Pointe in Motion opens the evening with a moving ink-in-water backdrop blended together with electronic dance music. Choreography inspired by the fluidity of thought creates a visually stunning and vibrant performance.
The world premiere of Surreal takes the stage with avant-garde balletic ideas, high fashion costumes, and an electronic dance score. Oozing with Salvador Dali-esque inspiration, the choreography roots the unconscious mind to the source of artistic creativity.

NYC’s Arch Ballet (A|B) is the brainchild of Artistic Director and Choreographer Sheena Annalise. Founded in 2013, at a time when less than a quarter of U.S. ballet companies were led by women, A|B emerged with a singular mission: to ensure the continuous evolution of ballet, designed for an inclusive and varied 21st century audience.
Innovative concepts, a groundbreaking mix of original music (from electronic dance to neoclassical), and diverse, world-class dancers represent the culture of tomorrow. Technology, visual art, fashion, science, and current cultural ideas imbue each of A|B’s creations to fortify the future of dance by fostering collaboration, curiosity, and creativity at every level. Ballet: reimagined, reinvented, and redefined.
They have graced the cover of Dance Informa (July 2016) and stolen the hearts of industry critics, who are hailing them as “brilliant” (The Dance Enthusiast) and “the answer to this art form surviving a hundred years more” (Dance Informa). Recently nominated for Most Inventive New Work 2019 by Dance Magazine audiences and Outstanding Performances of 2019 by Pointe Magazine audiences. Learn more at www.archballet.com|@
