TULSA BALLET II
Tulsa Ballet II is the official Pre-Professional Ensemble of Tulsa Ballet Theatre. TBII was designed to provide a bridge between the student phase of an aspiring classical ballet dancer and the professional career. TBII dancers receive a monthly stipend to help offset living expenses.
Through a national audition search, the most talented and committed young men and women have been invited to Tulsa to refine their artistic and technical skills by working with the upper levels of our school and the professional company. Tulsa Ballet II is a paid training program that offers its members performance opportunities throughout the year, including Journey through Dance, the Center for Dance Education’s year end performances, as well as the possibility to perform with Tulsa Ballet at the discretion of the Artistic Director. In recent years, Journey through Dance has included repertoire such as excerpts from Ma Cong’s Folia and Carmina Burana, Val Caniparoli’s Prawn Watching and Going for Baroque, Balanchine’s 4 Temperaments and Pas de Quatre, and Artistic Director Marcello Angelini’s La Sylphide, Les Sylphides, and Swan Lake, as well as La Bayadere, Sleeping Beauty, Flower Festival, Dying Swan and many more.
