Keeping the Boston Ballet's Mission Fresh and Relevant

"An Evening of Dance at the Strand" reflects the Boston Ballet's exploratory approach to its mission.  Not just a community event, the program is designed to expand the Company's understanding of the importance of ballet to the community at large.

The Boston Ballet is committed to bringing excellence to the art of ballet and to a growing audience through a process that is inclusive in scope and is both educational and creative.  The Company periodically asking questions of itself and reviewing "how" the mission is being implemented helps keep the Boston Ballet's mission fresh and relevant.
