STUDENT DIVISION

Ballet Chicago's curriculum is carefully stepped and provides students with the foundation necessary to pursue a career in classical ballet. The technique is Balanchine-based and offers the most advanced training methods available to ballet dancers today. All classes are conducted by teachers experienced in developing young children and are accompanied by one of our expert class pianists. Ballet Chicago's faculty is composed of former and current dancers. A unique feature of enrolling at Ballet Chicago is that students participate in a performance-based curriculum. On-stage experience builds confidence, promotes teamwork, and provides a twice-yearly benchmark for each child's progress. Our young dancers are given two exciting performance opportunities:

  • Ballet Chicago's annual Nutcracker performance (December)

  • Annual School Performances (May/June)

  • Opportunity to perform in Ballet Chicago's Annual Balanchine + Beyond Spring Series
