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.
