"We turn not older with years, but newer every day." - Emily Dickinson
“As dancers, Emily Dickinson’s line resonates deeply with us. Fully dependent on the human body as our instrument, we live in constant worry about the irreversible decays of aging. Yet, each day we experience growth, renewal, discovery. Unlike other professions, we experience this renewal physically inside our own body. We feel refreshed. We move deeper, rather than bigger. We take emotional risks in lieu of physical recklessness. We embrace our exhaustion and the fleetingness of our artistic life. And the next day we discover, with some surprise, that we are not older – but newer.” -Miro Magloire, New Chamber Ballet
Lauded as "refreshingly original" by Alastair Macaulay of The NY Times, choreographer Miro Magloire is the founder and artistic director of New Chamber Ballet.
Born in Munich, Germany, Magloire started his career as a composer. After relocating to New York and studying Modern Dance at the Ailey and Martha Graham Schools, he turned his attention to choreography and in 2004 founded New Chamber Ballet.
Magloire has created over 60 ballets in his signature style, all distinguished by sweeping elegance, a striking theatricality, and bold musical choices. The subject of a 2008 full-page profile in the Sunday NY Times, he recently received an O'Donnell-Green Music and Dance Foundation Grant.Play Video
