The Ballet School

The Ballet School prides itself on providing high quality classical ballet and dance training for students of all ages and abilities.  The structure of each class is both challenging and encouraging, with emphasis placed on developing proper dance technique and etiquette.  Performance opportunities are offered throughout the year for advanced level dance students.  The end-of-year dance recital in June provides a performance opportunity for students of every level to share what they have leaned over the course of the year.

Students should expect to remain in a level for more than one year. New students need the instructor’s permission to join a class after the second billing quarter.  The Ballet Studio adheres to SPCAA’s 36 week academic year (September – June).  For your convenience, tuition can be billed quarterly or yearly.

*Each level takes at least two ballet classes per week. Like sports, progressing to an advanced level in dance training requires more than one day of guided practice each week. *
Please contact the instructor with questions about level placement. 

*A minimum enrollment of 3 dancers is required for a class to run
*Dance classes can be attended virtually (on Zoom) upon request

Interested students should contact Ms. Alaina with questions about class placement.
