About Boston Ballet II

Led by Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen and Associate Director of BBII Peter Stark, Boston Ballet II, the Second Company of Boston Ballet is a two-year program featuring young, classically-trained dancers on the cusp of their professional careers. They perform extensively with the main Company at the Citizens Bank Opera House, in addition to their own touring engagements. BBII alumni make up more than a third of the current Boston Ballet roster, and others have gone on to professional careers in numerous American and International companies, including The Royal Ballet, Nederlands Dance Theater, American Ballet Theatre, Houston Ballet, Stuttgart Ballet, and The National Ballet of Canada.

The Post Graduate program, led by Kathleen Mitchell, is an extension of Boston Ballet School's Professional Division, designed for accomplished ballet students who have completed their academic education. These dancers train, rehearse, and perform alongside members of Boston Ballet II, as well as with Boston Ballet's main Company.
