The Atlanta Ballet 2 dancers will be selected from all over the world and will represent the artistic vision of Artistic Director Gennadi Nedvigin. These young individuals are dancers who have arrived at a defining point in their transitions to becoming professional dancers.

There will be several opportunities to perform with the Atlanta Ballet company in larger productions such as The Nutcracker, full-length ballets, and the family program that will feature Atlanta Ballet 2 dancers in leading roles. Atlanta Ballet 2 will also have its own performances of selected repertoire around the metro Atlanta area.

Candidates for Atlanta Ballet 2 are selected from the Academy Level IV, Summer Professional Intensive, and by audition. The Atlanta Ballet 2 dancers receive a weekly stipend and shoes during the Company’s season. They also receive free tuition to all classes and activities at the Atlanta Ballet Centre for Dance Education.

During the 2017|2018 Season, 9 of the 32 professional Atlanta Ballet company dancers passed through the former Fellowship Division during their careers. For the 2018|2019 Season, 4 Atlanta Ballet 2 dancers were promoted - 3 became apprentices and 1 a Company member.
