There Is Only Now.
—George Balanchine

The ballet – as our founder George Balanchine liked to say – only exists “right now.”
While this powerful metaphor of art as a continuously unfolding present reminds us that dance is staged by living people before a live audience, it is also about the vibrant immediacy of dance and the joy that it affords. To be swept up in the emotionally charged combination of motion giving shape to live music. And to allow ourselves to be wholly transported from our daily lives and the unrelenting buzz of constant distraction.

Whatever a dance was yesterday or will become tomorrow, the opportunity to experience what it is right now is fleeting. This makes it all the more imperative we seize the moment. Whether we come to see how the Company’s remarkable talent of today interprets our classics. Or when we go to the premiere of the innovative new works only now being created.

Season Highlights

A cherished staple of the repertory since its debut in 1967, Jewels was inspired by a visit George Balanchine made to the jewelers Van Cleef & Arpels.

Four classic works by our Founder, showcasing the wonderful variety of Balanchine’s neoclassical style.

Dance is wedded to story and character in this trio of classics.

This fall, Principal Dancer Joaquin De Luz marks his retirement from New York City Ballet at a one-time-only event  celebrating his 15-year career with the Company.
