American Ballet Theatre Junior Company Comes to UConn Storrs. The junior company of American Ballet Theatre is made up of 12-18 rising stars of the ballet world between the ages of 16 and 20. ABT Studio Company prepares these outstanding dancers from all over the globe to enter American Ballet Theatre or other leading ballet companies.
They perform masterworks of the classical and neoclassical canons, alongside contemporary and newly created works.

As part of the ABT Women’s Movement, the Studio Company commissions at least one new work by an emerging female choreographer each year.
“ABT Studio Company plays out charmingly as a fresh and fleet display of young dancers… accomplished classicists and comradely artists.” – The Wall Street Journal
