Boston Ballet has announced the expansion and relocation of the Boston Ballet School Newton Studio to 153 Needham Street in the N-Squared Innovation District
.The new studio will be located within the new Newton Nexus complex. The ballet’s current location at 863 Washington Street will remain fully operational for the 2016–2017 school year, with plans to move to the new space in Summer 2017.
For more than 30 years, Boston Ballet School has served a broad constituency in Newton for 30 years through the children’s program, classical ballet program, adult program, summer dance program and adaptive dance, a program that serves individuals with disabilities ages two through adult. The new location will allow for expanded programming with a total of seven studios—two more than the current space
The Newton Studio relocation was initially triggered by Mark Investments’ purchase of Boston Ballet’s existing site on Washington Street in January as part of the Washington Place Project.
