Cincinnati Ballet Second Company

CBII and Trainees

The Cincinnati Ballet Second Company is a group of talented, pre-professional dancers who come from around the world to study at Cincinnati Ballet and perform alongside Cincinnati Ballet’s company dancers. Second Company dancers can be found in the studio from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm every weekday, rehearsing and dancing with the company dancers, and in schools, community centers, churches, nursing homes and more, sharing the  joy of dance throughout our region. With a focus on engaging audiences of all ages, Second Company dancers reach over 20,000 students and community members annually and serve as the education outreach ambassadors for Cincinnati Ballet.
