Across more than 52 years, we have trained beginning through advanced dancers for a lifetime of participation in, as well as appreciation of the art of dance at our San Jose ballet studio. Our San Jose ballet school offers Youth Programs and Open Drop-In Programs for kids and adults of all levels and abilities.
We have delighted local audiences for over five decades with performances including Peter and the Wolf, Alice in Wonderland, Sleeping Beauty and Beauty and the Beast. The results of the Academy’s training have been gratifying. Many of its alumni have gone on to professional careers in dance and in ice-skating.
In December 2017, we will celebrate the 52nd annual production of our esteemed, “The Nutcracker” for two weekends at the San Jose Center for the Performing Arts in collaboration with Conductor Scott Krijnen and the Cambrian Symphony Orchestra.
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, 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.
