The Washington Ballet (TWB)

Thank You! Your rating has been saved.

Originally founded as The Washington School of Ballet in 1944 by legendary ballet pioneer Mary Day, The Washington Ballet (TWB) was incorporated as a professional company in 1976 and is one of the pre-eminent ballet organizations in the United States. TWB has built an international reputation presenting bold works by choreographers from around the world, and with its first artist-in-residence, Choo-San Goh, set the tone for the company's emergence as a powerhouse among national ballet companies. Contemporary pieces by Christopher Wheeldon, Mark Morris, Twyla Tharp, William Forsythe and Nacho Duato expanded the repertoire, as did Neoclassical masterworks and fresh interpretations of 19th century classics.

Today, under the leadership of Artistic Director Septime Webre and Executive Director Peter Branch, along with the guidance of the Board of Directors, TWB continues to pursue its three part mission.
