MIRO MAGLOIRE

Lauded as "refreshingly original" by Alastair Macaulay of The New York Times, choreographer Miro Magloire is the founder and artistic director of New Chamber Ballet.

Magloire has created over 60 ballets in his signature style for his company, all distinguished by sweeping elegance, a striking theatricality, and bold musical choices. "It's heartening to see work so focused on the meeting of dance and music,” Macaulay wrote in his Times review, “always you're aware of an intelligence at work that resists romantic cliché."

Known for his visionary collaborations with musicians - singers, violinists, pianists and large ensembles - Magloire has a special affinity for cutting-edge contemporary music, which has led him to work with many of today's leading composers.
 
Magloire, the subject of a 2008 full-page profile in the Sunday NY Times, recently received an O'Donnell-Green Music and Dance Foundation Grant. His works have been commissioned by Joyce/SoHo, Roulette, the Moving Sounds and Sonic Music Festivals in NYC, the Sarasota Opera, Grace Farms Connecticut, the Center for Faith and Work NYC, and the American Academy in Rome, Italy; and performed at the Jacob's Pillow Inside/Out Stage, Ailey/Citigroup Theater, the Center for Performance Research, the Museum of Art and Design, and Bramante's Tempietto at San Pietro in Montorio in Rome, among other venues. He has collaborated with the Argento Chamber Ensemble, Ensemble Moto Perpetuo, Ensemble Sospeso and, in addition, has created ballets for CelloPointe, Periapsis Music and Dance, the Columbia Ballet Collaborative, Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet and the State Academy of Dance in Cologne, Germany.
 
Born in Munich, Germany, Magloire started his career as a composer. At age 17 he won the “Forum of Young Composers Award” in North Rhine-Westphalia, and went on to study with Mauricio Kagel at the Conservatory of Music in Cologne, Germany.
 
After relocating to New York to study Modern Dance at the Ailey and Martha Graham Schools, where his teachers included Yung-Yung Tsuai and Kazuko Hirabayashi, and ballet with Wilhelm Burmann and Peff Modelski among others, he turned his attention to choreography and in 2004 founded New Chamber Ballet.

In 2017 he was one of 25 arts leaders nationally selected for the Association of Performing Arts Presenters’ (APAP) Leadership Fellows Program.
