Announcement


picture1Introducing Ask la Cour, Artistic Director

The Board of Directors of New York Dance Theatre, Inc. and the Ohman School of Ballet are thrilled to announce our new Artistic Director, New York City Ballet principal dancer Ask la Cour. Ask la Cour was born in Copenhagen, Denmark, and began his dance training at the age of nine at the Royal Danish Ballet School. He joined the Royal Danish Ballet as a member of the corps de ballet in 2000. Mr. la Cour joined New York City Ballet as a member of the corps de ballet in the fall of 2002, was promoted to the rank of soloist in May 2005, and became a principal in February 2013.
 
In his role as artistic director Mr. la Cour will work with the faculty and students to continue the standards of excellence and integrity for instruction handed down by New York City Ballet founder George Balanchine to former New York City Ballet soloist Frank Ohman, who founded the company and school 40 years ago. Mr. la Cour will reinforce the company’s strong ties with the New York City Ballet and both the Balanchine and Ohman legacies. Mr. la Cour will teach at the school as he has since first visiting the Ohman School of Ballet as a guest teacher in September 2019.
 
In addition to teaching the Balanchine method of ballet, he will bring new ideas to develop the dancers through his vast experience performing around the world. We welcome Ask la Cour and look forward to the continuation and evolution of the New York Dance Theatre, Inc. and Ohman School of Ballet under his guidance in the years to come.
