New Ballet is the Resident Ballet Company of the Hammer Theatre. NB performances are vibrant celebrations of dance and fun theatrical experiences for the whole family. Hailed by critics and audience members as “mesmerizing,” “innovative” and even “woke,” New Ballet celebrates the virtuosity of classical ballet and the cathartic power of the performing arts.
