New York City’s Arch Contemporary Ballet has been guided by Artistic Director and founder Sheena Annalise since 2013. Annalise’s choreographic process has brought a new connection to audiences between ballet and music. All of ACB’s repertoire is choreographed in silence before composers are brought in to create original music scores to the dancers’ precise movements. This exploration accentuates the works’ challenging line of the body, innovative partner work, and floor patterns that are “…not often seen on women in pointe shoes… (DancePanorama.com)”. ACB has been presented across the US, including the Paramount Theatre of Boston, Tempe Center for the Arts in Phoenix, Marlene Boll Theatre in Detroit, San Jose State University’s Dance Theatre in California, and more.

Sean Clements has been composing for over 15 years. He has been commissioned by Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater to compose “Annointed” and performed numerous performances of “The Hunt”. He has performed at Lincoln Center’s David H Koch Hall, The Apollo, and on The Today Show.
