We are excited to announce a new partnership! Starting in the fall of 2020, Boston Ballet School’s Professional Division at Walnut Hill (formerly Pre-Professional Program) will offer Boston Ballet School’s world-renowned dance instruction in conjunction with Walnut Hill School for the Arts’ best-in-class college preparatory academic and rich residential life program to provide a holistic educational experience on Walnut Hill’s scenic campus in Natick, Massachusetts, just outside of Boston.

The new partnership will be led by Boston Ballet’s Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen, Walnut Hill School for the Arts Head of School Antonio Viva, BBS Director Margaret Tracey, Head of Men’s Program Peter Stark, and internationally-renowned BBS faculty. Together in this new partnership, Walnut Hill School for the Arts and Boston Ballet School will oversee student life, academics, admissions, financial aid, scholarships, dance instruction, performances, choreography, music direction, recruitment, and career development. The collaboration truly supports our commitment to developing future dance artists in addition to providing students with a first-class academic program and a vibrant residential community.

We celebrate diversity while fostering a team spirit.
