Milwaukee Ballet is the home to an international company of dancers, and is one of the few companies in the nation to maintain its own orchestra.
Milwaukee Ballet II
The Milwaukee Ballet II Program was established in 1978 to nurture and develop gifted young dancers, bridging the gap between student and professional. The dancers build their technical skills and artistry by dancing alongside the professionals of Milwaukee Ballet Company in main stage productions, and a comprehensive training experience led by The Company’s artistic team and a series of guest instructors. These dancers are also featured in their own performances in Wisconsin venues and studio showcases. Milwaukee Ballet II trainees are a vital part of the award-winning Department of Community Outreach, serving more than 30,000 people in hands-on workshops and original performances in schools, libraries, nursing homes, and community centers all over Southeast Wisconsin. Graduates of the program are among the ranks of professional Companies worldwide.
