Ballet School & Performing Company


San José Dance Theatre’s mission is to develop, foster, and promote the art of dance for the youth in San José, Silicon Valley, and beyond. We welcome you to come dance with us!


San José Dance Theatre inspire dancers of all ages (kids and adults) in their exploration of ballet and fosters their growth through high-level training and mentoring experiences with professional dancers and instructors. The Academy’s primary focus is classical ballet, yet students also receive training in contemporary dance, conditioning (a combination of Pilates, yoga, strengthening and stretching), pointe, repertory, pas de deux and ballet education, including ballet history & terms, and injury prevention.



San Jose Dance Theatre’s Summer Intensive is June 19-July 8.
