The Company was established in 1948 by George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein and quickly became known for its pure neo-classicism. NYCB performs at Lincoln Center’s David H. Koch Theater, which was designed by Balanchine and Philip Johnson specifically for NYCB. The Company has nearly 100 dancers, a 62 member orchestra, and an annual 21-week season at Lincoln Center. With an energy that matches that of the bustling metropolis it calls home, it’s the quintessential NYC experience.
