About

Pennsylvania Ballet

 

Pennsylvania Ballet is one of the premier ballet companies in the United States and has been at the forefront of American dance since 1963.

A leading Philadelphia cultural institution, the Company has earned a national reputation for its impassioned artistry and technical virtuosity and has received widespread critical acclaim for extraordinary performances of a diverse classical and contemporary repertoire with a Balanchine base. The energy and exuberance of its versatile dancers are the Company's enduring signature.

Over the past several years, Pennsylvania Ballet has enhanced its artistic integrity while continually increasing its reach and strengthening its foundation through creative programming, initiatives such as the Family Matinee Series and Prologue Lecture Series, and a collection of educational and outreach programs titled Accent on Dance. In 2002, Pennsylvania Ballet II, the Joyce and Herbert Kean Trainee Program, was formed as a pre-professional training company and as an additional component for outreach programs.

From Giselle to RodeoA Midsummer Night's Dream to Company B, and Serenade to the signature George Balanchine's The Nutcracker™, Pennsylvania Ballet has continued to stretch its own boundaries, reaffirming its mission to present the best in American dance to Philadelphia audiences and beyond.
