Welcome to School of Sacramento Ballet!

I would like to welcome each and every student and all families to another beautiful and promising year at School of Sacramento Ballet!

Our school continues to provide the best dance education while making sure to provide a safe, clean, and nurturing environment for all of our students, staff, friends, and families. As our professional ballet company, Sacramento Ballet, launches its 69th ballet season, we too embrace new possibilities by adding a new performance opportunity for students with Ballet in the Park on Sept 16, 2023. Our annual Nutcracker Tea will be on November 5th. We continue to share the stage with Sacramento Ballet’s production of Nutcracker and our Spring Recital Performances for the Student Division and Pre-Professional Division will be at Hiram Johnson High School in May.  The Children’s Division Recital will continue to be held at the Studios.

Our conservatory style approach through a graded syllabus for our Children’s Division, Students Division, through Pre-professional Division will enhance your student’s experience. We continue to bring top rate teachers and staff that are committed and dedicated to your young dancer’s happiness, well-being, passion, and dreams.  Thank you for your trust, support, and being a part of our arts community.

I look forward to seeing the growth, confidence, and joy of each dancer this year.
