“From the opening pose and throughout this movement there was passion and professionalism... these performers are the next generation of ballet dancers, blossoming before our eyes."

-Broadway World

ABT Studio Company, the junior company of American Ballet Theatre, is made up of 12-18 rising stars of the ballet world between the ages of 17 and 21. ABT Studio Company prepares these outstanding young dancers, who hail from all over the globe, to enter American Ballet Theatre or other leading ballet companies worldwide. Nearly 80% of current dancers in American Ballet Theatre are alumni of ABT Studio Company, including 8 Soloists and 14 Principal Dancers – among them Misty Copeland, Isabella Boylston, and Calvin Royal III. 

ABT Studio Company dancers perform masterworks of the classical and neoclassical canons alongside contemporary works. The group commissions a wide variety of choreographers to create new, custom ballets on the dancers each season, with a special focus on female choreographers. 

The highly mobile ABT Studio Company serves as an ambassador for American Ballet Theatre by touring to venues large and small. In recent years, ABT Studio Company has performed in such international cities as London, Athens, Manila, Hong Kong, and St. Petersburg, and in a wide variety of US performing arts centers, college campuses, festivals, and galas.
