Arch Contemporary Ballets Summer Composer's Program offers an unparalleled experience in first hand exploration of composing music for dance rooted with the philosophy of Artistic Director, Sheena Annalise and resident composer Matthew AC Cohen. Students are guided through a new way of thinking about music composition.

The curriculum values the creative minds of our participating students as Matthew AC Cohen takes them through music theory, composing for dance, and other facets of being a composer including marketing your work, creating contracts, and more. A culminating performance for our composer's with their composition created on Arch Contemporary Ballet dancers will be performed twice on an NYC stage during ACB's performance season.

Emphasis is placed on cultivating the composer's ability to realize their full potential, express their individuality through composition, and learning to create work for dancers in a cross collaboration.

Founded in 2013, New York Citys Arch Contemporary Ballet was established with a bold spirit and innovative vision to create an artistic process that enhances the connection between ballet and music. All of ACBs works are choreographed and completed in silence. Commissioned artists then create original music scores specifically for each repertoire program. In addition to her innovative way of joining movement and music, Artistic Director and choreographer, Sheena Annalise, challenges classicism with a cutting-edge approach to partnering, pairing women on pointe together as partners. ACB has performed across the country including the Paramount Theatre in Boston, Tempe Center for the Arts in Tempe, AZ, Marlene Boll Theatre in Detroit, New York Citys Sheen Center, and more.

Artistic Director and choreographer, Sheena Annalise, at age 14, was honored to work with Wayne McGregor | Random Dance in Equator Project, nurturing her choreographic talent. She quickly found a distinct voice by creating innovative body lines and exploring her fascination with the connection between movement and music. In her early work she began to play with creating her own tempos, accents, and pauses in her ballets without the limitations of existing music. Looking to accentuate her silent yet rhythmic choreography, she developed her artistic process of commissioning artists to create music specifically to each repertoire program. Annalise spent 2012 mentoring with the Mark Morris Dance Group, when she then founded Arch Contemporary Ballet the following year. Through ACB she has received residencies and space grants throughout NYC and has been named a Prodigy by The Womens Project.
