Under the leadership of its Founder and Artistic Director José Mateo, the Company has been presenting original ballet works and new interpretations of classical ballets since its inception in 1986.
With a repertory of over 50 original works and New England’s longest running interpretation of The Nutcracker, Mr. Mateo is the recipient of the 2017/18 Massachusetts Cultural Council’s Commonwealth Award for Achievement and is one of the area’s most prolific choreographers.
Praised by local and national critics and hailed by Boston Magazine as “Best of Boston, Dance Performance,” the 20-member Company presents its repertory works at The Sanctuary Theatre located in the Old Cambridge Baptist Church in Harvard Square, Cambridge. This intimate, cabaret-style venue offers a ballet experience unlike any other with close-up views of the dancers and cocktails during the show.
The Company’s annual presentation of The Nutcracker, awarded Boston Magazine’s “Best in Boston Family-Friendly Show,” is currently being performed in two Boston theatres – The Cutler Majestic Theatre in Boston’s Theatre District and the historic Strand Theatre in Dorchester.
