Boston Ballet School (BBS) is the largest ballet school in North America providing unparalleled dance education and ballet training to over 5,000 students annually.  Its mission is to deliver a complete dance education while inspiring, nurturing, and sustaining a life-long love of dance in every student. In our pre-professional program, under the vision of Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen and BBS Director Margaret Tracy, we incorporate classical ballet, neo-classical ballet, and an exposure to contemporary dance to prepare students for today’s professional world.
