The Ballet School of Vermont & Northern Vermont Ballet

When you walk into the Ballet School of Vermont the atmosphere is always professional and you immediately get a sense that true meaningful teaching and learning is occuring.

The Ballet School of Vermont has been such a positive and meaningful place for our daughter.  She began dancing at the age of 3.5 and we knew that if she was choosing to dance that we, as parents, wanted her to have an authentic and classical experience.

All of the teachers at the Ballet School have been providing her with exactly that type of experience for the last 9 years.  The training and guidance that she has received has allowed her to grow into a dedicated and talented ballerina. Dancers are not only learning the correct placement that their bodies need to be in while dancing, but are also developing a serious mindset of the art of dance.

Our daughter has learned not only the ballet positions but also qualities of grace, focus, determination, and perseverance – qualities that will be important for her to have in all that she encounters throughout life.  We are truly grateful for The Ballet School of Vermont and feel blessed that it is a part of our lives.
