Under direction of Boston Ballet Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen and Associate Director of Boston Ballet II (BBII) Joan Boada, BBII features classically trained young dancers as they begin their professional performing careers.
This two-year program bridges the divide between training and professional careers with major dance companies. Dancers perform extensively with the main company, and in programs dedicated to works specifically selected and choreographed for BBII.
BBII alumni make up more than a third of the current Boston Ballet roster. BBII dancers have also gone on to professional careers in numerous American and international companies, including The Royal Ballet, Nederlands Dans Theater, American Ballet Theatre, Houston Ballet, Pennsylvania Ballet, and The National Ballet of Canada.
