Western Ballet also serves as an important sanctuary to many professional dancers providing them the ambiance, space, and classes to train and grow as artists. At Western Ballet a professional dancer has the opportunity to find work, to network with other professionals, and to update their own techniques and knowledge of the dance business.

From the start the mission of the institution has been to make the performing art of classical ballet accessible to the general public. As a non-profit institution, Western Ballet provides the community with a “clean well-lit place” to dance from young children to aspiring professionals to adult students. Western Ballet is a safe environment for students of all ages.

Scholarships are to students within the Financial Aid Program. Contact us for details.
