The School of Minnesota Ballet is the premier ballet school for professional training in the Northland region. We provide ballet and other dance classes to children and young people, ages 3 and up, as well as adults. Our well-trained faculty focuses on providing an all-inclusive, safe, nurturing atmosphere where we teach topnotch training with a positive approach.
The training we provide is based on traditional Vaganova technique. Our original syllabus specializes in the breaking down of and proper clarity in teaching ballet steps that lead to a solid foundation of dance in any discipline.
Our goal is to nurture young people, allowing them to develop into thriving, self-empowered young adults, as well as passionate artists and art lovers.
Events and features of our training include annual school performances, community appearances, educational outreach, and performances with Minnesota Ballet.
