The Milwaukee Ballet II program, established in 1978, nurtures and develops dancers’ technical skills and artistry required for a professional career in dance. The Nancy Einhorn Milwaukee Ballet II curriculum is based on the artistic vision of Milwaukee Ballet and gives dancers the training needed to bridge the gap between student and professional through performing opportunities with the Milwaukee Ballet Company, as well as performances created specifically for Milwaukee Ballet II. These dancers are a vital part of the Department of Education’s mission to reach and educate the community. Their participation in outreach programs through teaching and performing fully enhances their education.
"A favorite part of my experience in Milwaukee Ballet II was performing with the company and having the thrill of watching the principals of my time from the wings. They were truly inspiring and I would try to emulate all that I had seen."
~Amy Fote, Houston Ballet, Milwaukee Ballet II Graduate
