Boston Ballet

Boston Ballet dancers perform on stage


Since 1963, Boston Ballet’s internationally-acclaimed performances of classical, neo-classical, and contemporary ballets — combined with a dedication to world-class dance education and community initiatives — have made the institution a leader in its field, with a 60-year history of promoting excellence and access to dance.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen and Executive Director Ming Min Hui, the company maintains a diverse repertoire, ranging from full-length ballets to new works by some of today's finest choreographers. Boston Ballet's second company, Boston Ballet II, comprises dancers who gain experience by performing both with the company and independently.

Boston Ballet School, the official school of Boston Ballet, has a long-standing dedication to providing exceptional dance education and ballet training to students across three studios in Boston, Newton, and Natick. The school trains more than 5,000 students — from toddlers to adults — every year through its core programs: the graduate program, professional division at Walnut Hill, classical ballet program, children’s program, adaptive dance program, and adult dance program. Boston Ballet School also operates community education and arts experiences around Boston and beyond, providing programming, events, and activities that connect the community to dance. Community programs reach more than 4,000 individuals in Boston and the surrounding region each year through workshops, trainings, and the Citydance program.
