Artistic Director

Ib Andersen - Following a brilliant career performing on the world’s greatest ballet stages, Ib Andersen was named Artistic Director of Ballet Arizona and The School of Ballet Arizona in 2000. Born in Copenhagen, he was introduced to ballroom dance at a young age. Then, at age 7 he was accepted into the School of the Royal Danish Ballet. He joined the Royal Danish Ballet at age 16 and became a principal dancer at age 20 — the youngest principal in the company’s history. Mr. Andersen’s career and reputation flourished in Europe, bringing him to the attention of the director of New York City Ballet (NYCB), George Balanchine. Andersen joined NYCB in 1980 and during his first three months he learned 35 ballets and demonstrated a remarkable affinity for the Balanchine style and technique. This led Balanchine to create principal roles for him in Ballade, Davidsbündlertänze, and Mozartiana. Jerome Robbins and Peter Martins also created roles for Andersen’s unique style. In 1987, while Andersen was still with NYCB, the Royal Danish Ballet gave him his first choreographic commission, for which he created 1-2-3—1-2. When he retired as a principal from NYCB in 1990, Andersen began a second career as a guest ballet master for companies around the world. He staged ballets by August Bournonville, Michel Fokine, Jerome Robbins, and others; most notably, George Balanchine. Mr. Andersen’s affinity for Balanchine’s works led to his appointment as a Balanchine Repetiteur; one of a handful of artists worldwide authorized by The George Balanchine Trust to stage the master’s pieces.
