The academy’s primary focus is classical ballet, as well as other ballet classes, including contemporary, conditioning (a combination of Pilates, yoga, strengthening and stretching), pointe, repertory, Chinese tumbling and stretching, and pas de deux.

Welcome from Linda Hurkmans, Artistic Director
As the Artistic Director, it is my pleasure to pass on the legacy of San José Dance Theatre, now in its 53rd year, to the next generation. I realize that students have different talents and different goals concerning their dancing. I honor all of them and want to encourage their love of dance.
Quality performance opportunities.
From the longest running San Jose Nutcracker to our ballet school’s annual performances, we provide numerous quality dance opportunities to all.
