New Chamber Ballet's performances marry elegant, thoughtful choreography and live chamber music, performed by a group of excellent dancers and musicians. The company performs in studios and other non-theatrical venues where the audience experiences the thrill of sounds and movements up close.
Founded in 2004, New Chamber Ballet is based in New York City and is led by artistic director Miro Magloire, a choreographer and composer. The company has been called "one of the small-scale delights of the New York Dance Scene" (Roslyn Sulcas, The New York Times,) and Dance Europe's Tim Martin added, "this is quirky, high-quality work… Magloire is not just a composer or a choreographer... but an impresario, a Diaghilev in miniature." Artistic director Miro Magloire was the subject of a full page profile in the New York Times' Sunday Arts section.
In addition to Magloire, an array of talented young choreographers have created works for the company, including Emery LeCrone, Constantine Baecher and Deborah Lohse. Magloire's affinity for contemporary music - a by-product of his composition training - has given New Chamber Ballet one of the most original musical repertories in the current dance scene.
New Chamber Ballet has presented an ongoing performance series at Manhattan's City Center Studios since 2005, and has performed at the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival's Inside/Out, Joyce SoHo, Roulette NYC, and the Center for Performance Research among others. The company has also toured nationally and internationally.
