BALLET ARTS was established in September of 1986 and has since gained the reputation as Arizona’s foremost classical ballet training institution.

Our permanent faculty is comprised of highly accomplished ballet, jazz, and tap professionals who have danced in prestigious American companies as soloists and principal dancers.

Our faculty is dedicated to maintaining the highest standards in the teaching of the “American” style of ballet. This emerging style combines the best of the Russian, French, and Italian schools with a distinctive dose of American restless energy and youthful spirit. Our teachers share a common technical background and philosophy of teaching and we hope to provide each student with a full and exciting dance education in a creative environment.
