Ballerina & Artistic Director of Arch Contemporary BalletNew York City, NYPhotography by Andrea PosadasStory by Andrea Posadas

Our shoot happened in New York City on one of the coldest days of the year, but Sheena Annalise not only showed bravery in her tiny tutu but kept an optimistic mind and smile throughout the ice-covered morning. Sheena’s personality and dance moves exude an artistic grace and power that directly translate to how she takes on life and her business. At the age of 22, Sheena has accomplished more than most of us would hope to.


My name is Sheena Annalise, and I am the Artistic Director and Founder of Arch Contemporary Ballet in New York City. I founded Arch Contemporary Ballet in May of 2013 and we have quickly paved our path to become a leading emerging contemporary ballet company.

Arch Contemporary Ballet is continuously noted for “pointe work that is not often seen with two women in pointe shoes…” ( . ACB is an all female cast company that brings dynamic partner work, dexterity, and innovation to each performance.
