About PENNSYLVANIA Ballet II

Pennsylvania Ballet II is a program for young dancers who are just beginning their professional careers. The “second company” dancers receive intensive daily instruction and fine-tuning from the Pennsylvania Ballet artistic staff, and rehearse and perform with the main company for all of Pennsylvania Ballet's larger productions.
 
Pennsylvania Ballet II also complements Pennsylvania Ballet’s existing outreach and education program, Community Engagement. Initiated in February 2002 through the generosity of founding donors Joyce and Herbert Kean, the program enables Pennsylvania Ballet to greatly expand the scope and depth of its outreach effort through theater and non-theater-based performances at Philadelphia-area schools and other small venues.
