ABOUT TWB Originally founded as Washington School of Ballet in 1944 by legendary ballet pioneer Mary Day, The Washington Ballet ( TWB ) was incorporated as a professional company in 1976 and is one of the pre-eminent ballet organizations in the United States. TWB built an international reputation presenting bold works by choreographers from around the world, and its first artist-in-residence, Choo-San Goh, set the tone for the company's emergence as a powerhouse among national companies. Contemporary pieces by Christopher Wheeldon, Mark Morris, Twyla Tharp, William Forsythe and Nacho Duato expanded the repertoire, as did Neoclassical masterworks and fresh interpretations of 19th century classics. Under the leadership of Artistic Director Septime Webre and Executive Director Russell Allen, and with the guidance of The Washington Ballet Board of Directors, TWB has embraced a three-part mission: ensuring excellence in its professional performance company, growing the next generation of dancers through its Washington School of Ballet and serving the communities of the Washington, DC area through robust community engagement programs, including DanceDC and twb thearc.
