New York City Ballet members dance at ’62 Center on Fri, Oct. 18, 8:00pm

The evening’s repertory includes Balanchine’s “Apollo,” Robbins’ “Moves,” Peck’s “Sleep Well,” and a work selected by Lauren Lovette. One of the foremost dance companies in the world, New York City Ballet hosts a roster of spectacular dancers and an unparalleled repertory.

The Company was founded in 1948 by George Balanchine and Lincoln Kirstein and quickly became world-renowned for its athletic and contemporary style. Jerome Robbins joined NYCB the following year and, with Balanchine, helped to build the astounding repertory and firmly establish the Company in New York, revolutionizing ballet in the process.
