The Professional Dance Training School of Arizona
(Official School of Ballet Tucson)
BALLET ARTS was established in September of 1986 and has since gained the reputation as Arizonas 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.
Ballet Arts places great importance on students gaining stage and performance experience. Young dancers are exposed to and perform in professional full-length ballets with Ballet Tucson (Southern Arizona’s Professional Ballet Company). Such ballets include Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Cinderella, The Nutcracker and more. See below for information about Ballet Tucson 2.
