Ballet School and San Jose Nutcracker
Ballet classes for students ages 4 years to adult since 1965. We inspire students to explore dance and foster their growth through professional ballet training, mentoring, and quality performance opportunities, such as the San Jose Nutcracker. 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, and pas de deux.
