Ballet Chicago's Preparatory Division classes provide an inspired introduction to the arts with a focus on creativity, group interaction, motor skill development, and the joy of self-expression. 

Enrollment includes the opportunity to perform in our annual production of The Nutcracker at the Athenaeum Theatre in Chicago's Lakeview neighborhood and our Annual School Performance. 

Dress Code Information:
Preparatory Division students are encouraged to wear tutus and tiaras/tunics and crowns so that they can experience the full joy of being a young ballerina or future male danseur!
