Capital City Ballet offers a complete focused program of classical ballet for ages three through adult, taught by teachers with expertise as former professional ballet dancers and years of teaching experience. Studying ballet is more than just an activity, it is a physically and artistically enriching challenge for every student from our beginning through pre-professional levels. We believe that ballet dancers are both artists and athletes, and teaching dance is an educational endeavor. Class sizes are limited to guarantee personal attention and progress, with teachers working as a team with parents and students to impart a level of expertise for ballet in an environment that is both nurturing and disciplined while focused on developing the full potential of each individual student.
