Our Story

A dynamic ballet company created to nurture a new generation of dancers, choreographers, musicians and artists.

Since launching in 2010, NEBT has gained respect and recognition for our visionary approach to ballet making. We have produced yearly West End shows and toured them professionally across the UK to critical and audience acclaim.

We are a creative platform for young professional dancers as they enter full time careers, offering support to the next generation of ballet choreographers, designers and musicians.

Classical dancers and choreographers, like visual artists and playwrights, need the creative space to experiment, research and develop their work.

Working with NEBT allows dancers to strengthen their artistry and technique by offering them leading roles in a wide range of new choreographic works and carefully curated West End shows.

Over the years we have amassed an army of followers and a highly regarded repertoire, all receiving 3 and 4 star reviews.

In the company’s 10th year, NEBT had been invited by the Royal Opera House to perform in the Young Talent Festival at the Linbury Theatre, representing England’s emerging talent in this international celebration of dance. However, in light of the disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we had to announce the postponement of all performances until further notice.

We are very fortunate that we have been able to offer continous support to our 2020 company of dancers despite the pandemic, thanks to generous donations to our Artists’ Relief Fund. Whilst in lockdown, the dancers created the video Lockdown into Light together and individually produced a series of short, playlist-style videos, called Dancer’s Playlist, which you can watch on our YouTube channel.
