Boston Ballet II

Boston Ballet II (BBII) is the exciting pre-professional program in residence at Boston Ballet. Members of BBII are young dancers of outstanding ability, ages 16-21, who are challenged to improve artistically and technically so they may reach their full potential. The two-year program bridges the divide between the final year of schooling and professional careers with major dance companies and offers dancers a full range of performance opportunities in addition to further skill development as artists.

BBII members gain professional exposure and train with Boston Ballet’s Artistic Director and Staff, as well as with guest choreographers, stagers and directors from distinguished American and international companies. An indispensible and important part of their performance education is understudying and appearing regularly on stage with Boston Ballet.

Beyond main-stage appearances, BBII also performs its own repertoire throughout the Greater Boston Community. Annual engagements in local K-12 academic schools extend BBII’s performance opportunities as well as Boston Ballet’s invaluable outreach efforts. Under the auspices of Young Audiences of Massachusetts, this interactive series featuring BBII is designed to introduce ballet to new audiences and develop youth appreciation for ballet as an art form.
