The Children’s Ballet Theatre is a classical ballet school in Danville, Indiana, serving over 100 local students of all ages.
Since our founding in 1987, we have been dedicated to helping students develop self-discipline, dedication, positive self-esteem, and an appreciation for the art of dance.
As a nonprofit school, we emphasize accessible dance education, welcoming students of all ages and backgrounds. Our staff is committed to educating, enriching, and inspiring each student’s unique gifts of talent and creativity in a safe studio environment.
Students who join The Children’s Ballet, including very young students, receive a classical ballet education, learning about classical music, composers, French ballet terminology, and how dance can tell a story without words. Some of our older students graduate to college and professional dance programs.
Every student is given an opportunity to perform before their families and their peers with pride and excitement. Each year, the school produces its hallmark original full-length ballets, written and choreographed especially for each season’s dancers.
Our students start as young as three years old and many stay with us through high school. Most of our classes last one hour and there are multiple classes every day.
