The Washington Ballet

The Washington Ballet (TWB) was founded as The Washington School of Ballet in 1944 and incorporated as a professional company in 1976. Artistic Director Julie Kent’s long-term vision is to elevate the prominence of the company as world-class ballet company in the nation’s capital by concurrently expanding the size of the company while broadening its repertoire. Her commitment to the development of both the dancer and the art form is fulfilled through presentation of beloved classic 19th-century ballets and landmark 20th-century works while reaffirming a commitment to commissioned works that will contribute to the evolution of ballet and its relevance in our times.
