The School of Madison Ballet provides high-quality technical training in the art of ballet.
The vision of the School of Madison Ballet is to engage all students and provide them with a dance education that:
Builds a strong technical foundation based on the methodology devised by 20th century masters of the art form.
Prepares them for the technical, artistic, and mental challenges of ballet by introducing them to the vast repertoire of classical ballet.
Emphasizes a strong foundation focusing on proper placement, technical precision, musicality, and artistic confidence.
Provides workshops and classes in technique, pointe, and variations that set immediate and long-range goals with an end goal of technical and artistic mastery.
Creates the optimal conditions for learning by building and nurturing a mentoring relationship between student and teacher that is based on trust and respect.
Allows students to achieve excellence in a manner that increases their self-confidence to aid them as they face challenges in other areas of their lives.
Creates a non-threatening yet highly disciplined environment in the studio that emphasizes positive reinforcement to stimulate immense personal growth and progress.
Shares the teachers' passion for ballet with students in a way that inspires each of them to pursue their own passions and goals.
