Meet the Professional Company

Before an audience stands the ballerina or male dancer with poise and presence, owning the domain of the stage. The Company dancer has the ability to embody the essence of any type of character, to flow seamlessly between a multitude of styles, and has the power to move others through deep emotional journeys. After a decade of training and perseverance, the Company dancer emerges as the strong, complete artist with sound understanding of movement mechanics, musicality, and grasp of emotive range.

Professional Company dancers spend 40 hours a week in the studio learning and rehearsing works from renowned choreographers, adding to the extensive repertoire. This time and practice produces an average of more than 40 productions per season and has made BalletMet one of the nation’s top 20 largest Professional Companies.
