Teen Ballet: Our School Is Fun, Friendly & Not Competitive!


You want to attend great ballet for teens classes with excellent teachers, invigorating movement and fun classmates, right?

Each dance school has a distinctive culture, some trendy, some fiercely competitive, and some like ours are friendly and 100% non-competitive.

What does non-competitive mean in this context? It means that students in our classes compete with themselves, not against other students, and not against you. The absence of competitive behavior allows for a cooperative, supportive, and encouraging  environment for all students.

Teachers do not favor some students over others. Everyone in class is there for the love of dancing and the desire to improve. Everyone appreciates and respects each other. We're all here to learn, stay fit, make friends and to experience the joy that only dance can deliver.

Our Teen Ballet Classes 

All of our teen ballet classes include barre, center, stretching, adagio, and allegro work. Our dance classes focus on both a physical and an intellectual understanding of how each movement should be executed. Strength, flexibility, grace, balance, poise, and musicality will be developed along with an understanding of the principles of ballet technique.

You'll find our school culture very welcoming, non-competitive, and fun.
