New Mexico Ballet Company

In 1972, Suzanne and Sidney Johnston formed the New Mexico Ballet Company. For the past 46 years, NMBC has supported the local arts community by providing the highest-quality productions to New Mexico stages. NMBC has attracted world-renowned guest artists, such as Mikhail Baryshnikov, Susan Jaffe, Natalia Krassovska, Philip Neal, and current stars of American Ballet Theatre and New York City Ballet, all while providing a means for young dancers to launch professional dance careers. Over the past two decades, NMBC was honored with the approval of the George Balanchine Trust and New York City Ballet to perform George Balanchine’s Serenade, Concerto Barocco, Valse Fantaisie, and Tchaikovsky Pas de Deux. Each year, NMBC champions arts in education for New Mexico school children through school shows at local theaters and on-site workshops and performances. These efforts, provide more than 8,400 New Mexico school children access to dance arts annually.
