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. For summer activity, Children's Theme Camps are offered for Preparatory Division Students. 

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!
