Artistic Leadership

ARB’s fresh, wondering, fantasy-filled approach to motion and color requires plenty of aesthetic intelligence.

ARB2, American Repertory Ballet’s second company, is a development company for talented young dancers. The mission of ARB2 is to advance the next generation of artists and ensure that our talented young dancers are ready for the next step in their careers.  Dancers in ARB2 will work directly with the main company on a daily basis, training, rehearsing and frequently performing with the professional company.  ARB2 often has a repertory of dance designed expressly for ARB2 dancer development, which they will perform at local schools, assisted-care facilities, festivals and outreach events.
