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 were saddened to announce the postponement of all performances to 2021. Please read our full programming update here.
