Background Statement

Boston Ballet was founded by New England native E. Virginia Williams, who had performed and taught prior to forming the New England Civic Ballet in 1958.An historic Ford Foundation grant, plus artistic assistance from George Balanchine, transformed that ensemble into the region’s first professional ballet company in 1963.Until her death in 1984, Miss Williams oversaw an eclectic repertory of classical, contemporary, and cutting-edge works, and encouraged young talent.Today, Boston Ballet is one of America’s premiere classical companies.Recognized for its breadth and versatility, the Company is a major presence on the performing arts landscape of Boston and New England.Its strength rests on the excellence of its dancers, musicians, artistic staff, management, and repertoire, which features full-length classics, a provocative array of 20th-century ballets, and commissions by today’s leading choreographers.Housed in an admirable home facility and renowned for its teaching, Boston Ballet is peerless as the region’s leading producer of dance programs. In the fall of 2009, the Company established a long-term residency at The Boston Opera House, performing its entire season of productions in a single venue for the first time since 2004.
During the 2017-2018 Season, over 70 Boston Ballet and BBII dancers will give 92 performances at the Opera House, a restored landmark in Boston's theater district.The Boston Ballet Orchestra has been hailed by critics as one of the best ballet orchestras in the country.The Company has commissioned such notable contemporary choreographers as Morris, Wheeldon, Tharp, and Cunningham, while exhibiting its mastery of works by Balanchine, Forsythe, and Kylian, and continuing to win acclaim for its performances of classical masterworks.In 2005, Mr. Nissinen named Jorma Elo, a long-time member and associate of Netherlands Dance Theater, as the Company’s resident choreographer. The Company established an ongoing artistic partnership with William Forsythe in 2016.
Boston Ballet has captured the attention of a loyal public, including an annual audience of more than 175,000 and a 200-member Volunteer Association.Boston Ballet School, established in 1953, offers high-caliber dance training in three locations.Since 1991, the Company's South End offices and studios have been housed in a state-of-the-art facility designed by Graham Gund and renovated in 2010. The Company’s largest studio converts to a 144-seat “black box” theater.

Impact Statement

• Founded by E. Virginia Williams in 1963, Boston Ballet was the first professional repertory ballet company in New England. A major national and international dance institution, it is known and admired for its world-class performances, top-tier training programs, and groundbreaking community education initiatives. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen and Executive Director Meredith (Max) Hodges, the Company maintains an extensive and eclectic repertoire of classical, neo-classical, and contemporary works, ranging from fresh stagings of the full-length classics, to major 20th-century ballets, and to recent work and commissions from today’s leading choreographers. 

• Mr. Nissinen’s “company of the future” features versatile artists who consistently master the stylistic challenges of the Company’s far-ranging repertory.  This multi-national roster, representing as many as 20 countries, includes over 70 full-contract professionals and the members of BBII.

Performances meet the highest theatrical standards, including live music provided by skilled pianists and the Boston Ballet Orchestra. Set and costume designs by renowned artists are skilfully executed by the Production and Wardrobe departments. The season is presented at The Boston Opera House, a restored 1928 venue seating over 2,500. BB@Home marks its fifth year, with two programs staged in the black box theater at Boston Ballet’s South End studio facility.

  • The Company’s 55th season opens on September 6 with a repertory program paying tribute to the centennial years of Jerome Robbins and Leonard Bernstein.  Full-length productions include THE NUTCRACKER, in Mr. Nissinen's own Petipa-inspired staging, CINDERELLA, and COPPELIA.  Two additional repertory programs feature World Premieres by William Forsythe and Principal Dancer Paulo Arrais.  

 •Boston Ballet School, under Director Margaret Tracey, offers quality training in three locations and enrolls over 5,000 students each year.  The BBS Trainee program prepares dancers for the professional world, including BBII. Summer Dance Program annually brings up to 500 young pre-professionals from the US and abroad for intensive study with a distinguished faculty; 400 more participate in non-resident summer programs. Key education programs -- Citydance, Taking Steps, Adaptive Dance – are administered by the division of Education and Community Relations (ECI),which stresses community relations as the basis for effective program delivery.  

Needs Statement

Boston Ballet’s over-arching objective is to achieve the highest levels of excellence in each of its program areas – performance, training, and community education -- while maintaining realistic financial goals and overall fiscal responsibility.While the Company has made extraordinary advances in recent years, each season presents challenges, some field-specific, others linked to the broader environment.
To maintain the highest levels of artistic quality, the Company must maintain its full-time roster at 55-60 in order to execute the repertoire and protect dancers from injury. Annual repertory acquisitions and new production builds constitute a significant annual expense, as does our commitment to using live music in performance. The Boston Opera House residency costs include rent, equipment, and labor.
We must continue to build the capacity of the development program, adding qualified personnel in the major gifts areas as we strive to attain annual fund targets, plus additional goals for the Artistic Fund, Education and Community Initiatives, and other activities.
To uphold our mission-based commitment to access, we must seek added support for community initiatives, Boston Ballet School scholarships, ticket subsidy, and program personnel.

2018-19 Performance Season

Boston Ballet opens its 55th Season with Genius at Play (September 6-16, 2018) and its classic production of The Nutcracker (November 29-December 30).  The Spring Season features four productions: a repertory program entitled Full on Forsythe (March 7-17, 2019), Coppelia (March 21-31), Cinderella (May 10-June 8), and a final repertory program, Rhapsody (May 16-June 9).   The full-length Cinderella and Rhapsody will be danced in repertory.
Budget  $17,507,000.00
Category  Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Dance
Population Served General/Unspecified
Program Short-Term Success 
Production success is monitored qualitatively, through public/press response, and quantitatively, through close oversight of sales and attendance statistics.  Boston Ballet sold or distributed nearly 170,000 tickets to its performances at The Boston Opera House during the 2017-18 Season.  The total included over 82,000 who attended performances of The Nutcracker, and an audience of some 70,000 for regular season performances.  The season audience included over 6,630 subscribers.
Overall, FY18 saw net revenues of more than $12.5 million from total ticket sales.
Program Long-Term Success 
Boston Ballet is committed to maintaining artistic integrity, training opportunities, and public access in the larger service of advancing classical dance in the United States.  The Company's ability to adhere to this vision, during multiple eras of transition and financial uncertainty throughout its 54-year history, is a major indicator of its long-term success as a resident performing arts organization.
Program Success Monitored By 
The success of Company programming is monitored by executive and senior staff on both the artistic and administrative sides of the organization.  Each department -- artistic, production, development, marketing --  uses an appropriate set of goals and processes to measure progress and outcomes through the course of a given season.  Results are conveyed to the Board on an ongoing basis by senior leadership of the organization.  
Examples of Program Success 

In recent seasons, the Company has amassed a nearly unbroken record of positive press, including media response to its touring engagements in Spain, Korea, and the US. The New York Times stated “Boston Ballet has come a vast distance. Its dancers are striking by national and international standards” andThe Boston Globecalled Boston Ballet’s transformation one of the “biggest arts stories of the decade."  Feature stories in the Times (April 29, 2011) and the Globe (September 11, 2011) detailed the organization's resilience in the last ten years and the positive outcomes it has achieved under Mikko Nissinen's direction.



Students (ages 2 to adult) enroll in a variety of dance and enrichment classes offered by Boston Ballet School (BBS). Over 5,000 students of all ages enrolled in BBS programs at the Boston (2,250), Newton (2,000) and North Shore (850) studios this past year. Offerings include Pre-Ballet, the Children's Program, the Classical Ballet Program and the Pre-Professional Program. Summer programs reached over 950 students; approximately 375 adults participate each week in open classes and enrolled Introductory workshops. Access programs overseen by the department of Education/Community Initiatives (Citydance, Taking Steps, Adaptive Dance) reached over 4,000 students and community members last season.
Budget  $6,580,000.00
Category  Arts, Culture & Humanities, General/Other Dance
Population Served Children and Youth (0 - 19 years) Adults At-Risk Populations
Program Short-Term Success 
Boston Ballet School, annually serving over 5,000 students in three locations during the regular academic year, is the largest classical dance school in the U.S.  In addition, the School hosts an important residential training program each summer for aspiring pre-professionals (ages 14-19), who are chosen through competitive auditions held in over a dozen cities in the U.S. and abroad each winter.  Some 350-400 students are admitted each year; many of them will continue their studies and attain dance careers.  School tuition is a significant portion of the annual budget, accounting for a projected $9.2M (26%) of the Company's total of $23.2M in earned revenues in FY19. 
Community outreach initiatives, most of which are offered at no cost, are highly valued by local corporations and foundations, which contribute the majority of budgeted expenses for each program year.  Individuals, further inspired by the quality of BBS students, contribute some $150,000 each year in scholarship support. 
Program Long-Term Success 
For more than 50 years, Boston Ballet School has sought to provide the highest quality in classical dance training and thereby promote understanding and enjoyment of the art form.  Since the late 1980's, the Company has pursued a mission-based objective to extend similar ideals to the general public, developing a range of access programs, as well as enduring partnerships with the city of Boston and the Boston Public Schools. 
Program Success Monitored By 
The success of these programs is overseen by Margaret Tracey and Dave Czesniuk, who respectively monitor the artistic and administrative aspects of Boston Ballet School and related educational programming.  Ms. Tracey and the principals for each School site in turn supervise and evaluate the full- and part-time faculty members who teach studio classes.  Mr. Czesniuk oversees the progress of the Education/Community Initiatives division, whose staff and faculty produce and deliver Citydance, Taking Steps, Adaptive Dance, and other access programs, each of which has its own evaluation component.
Examples of Program Success 
A highly visible example of Boston Ballet School's success is in the increasing number of dancers who complete BBS training and later enter the Company or its junior ensemble, Boston Ballet II (BBII).  This traditional path ensures the professionalism and stylistic continuity that are among the hallmarks of the world's greatest ballet companies.
The longevity of the Company's main outreach programs -- Citydance (27 years), Taking Steps (19 years) and Adaptive Dance (17 years) -- is a marker of their success and an indication of Boston Ballet's staunch, mission-based commitment to such initiatives.  Through these classes, thousands of children have been exposed to dance; hundreds have been granted the opportunity to study at BBS.  Citydance has produced several alumni -- including soloist Isaac Akiba -- who have pursued further dance study and attained professional status.

The Impact tab is a section on the Giving Common added in October 2013; as such the majority of nonprofits have not yet had the chance to complete this voluntary section. The purpose of the Impact section is to ask five deceptively simple questions that require reflection and promote communication about what really matters – results. The goal is to encourage strategic thinking about how a nonprofit will achieve its goals. The following Impact questions are being completed by nonprofits slowly, thoughtfully and at the right time for their respective organizations to ensure the most accurate information possible.

1. What is your organization aiming to accomplish?


2. What are your strategies for making this happen?


3. What are your organization’s capabilities for doing this?


4. How will your organization know if you are making progress?


5. What have and haven’t you accomplished so far?
