Known today as the father of Danish ballet, August Bournonville traveled extensively through?out Europe as a dancer and ballet master, and his works have become the hallmark of the Romantic style of ballet. Bournonville Divertissement, featuring excerpts from several noted Bournonville ballets, has been in the ABT II repertory since the Company's creation.
American Ballet Theatre II was formed by Richard Englund in 1972 under its former name, Ballet Repertory Company. As the second company of Ballet Theatre Foundation, Inc., it was designed to reflect the repertory, style, and quality of American Ballet Theatre. The Company features some of America's most talented young dancers in works ranging from classical ballet to contemporary and modern dance. Since 1972 American Ballet Theatre II has performed in 217 cities in 42 states, including Ann Arbor in 1973, and seven foreign countries.
