Our vision is to inspire our community through accessible dance education and engaging performances. We truly believe that dance is for everyone and that art can foster community, create positive influence, and inspire the individual.
The Children’s Ballet is located in downtown Danville at 51 South Tennessee Street, close to the Danville Public Library. Ample parking is available in a lot across Tennessee street. There is limited parking behind the studio and on Tennessee street.

A safe and positive studio environment is best for teaching, learning and having fun – and is essential to our success.
- Listen carefully and follow directions.
- Be polite and encouraging to your classmates. Dance requires teamwork!
- Respect your classmates and teachers in your words and actions.
- Thank your teachers at the end of class.
Parents are expected to support their child’s dance education. We expect our students to use the bathroom before coming to class, arrive on time for their classes with proper, clean attire and hair supplies, be rested, in good health, with nutritional support before aerobic work (i.e. not hungry because they did not get a snack after school).
We have found that the biggest stress students feel is arriving late to class. Parents can help alleviate this fear by allowing extra time to navigate traffic and parking.
Dancers are welcome in the studio dressing room 10-15 minutes before class. Please try to be prompt when picking up your dancer from class.
The following holidays will be observed during the 2021/22 season and the studio will be closed for classes on:
- Labor Day: September 6
- Thanksgiving: November 25-28
- Winter Break: December 13 – January 16 (December and January tuition is 50%)
- Spring Break: March 28 – April 3
Note: we do not close for fall break
Weather Closings + Class Cancellations and Absences
For weather cancellations, we follow the Danville Community School Corporation on school days. Saturday class cancellations will be communicated by email/text. All closures will be announced via social media as well.
If a class must be cancelled we do our best to schedule a makeup class at no additional cost to the student. Dates for makeup classes will be emailed to you. Fees are not reduced, however, if a dancer misses a class. Class openings are reserved for your student regardless of attendance. Please notify the studio of your dancer’s absence as soon as possible before class begins. You may call or text 317.316.7373, or email your instructor (first name)@thechildrensballet.com.
For the safety of everyone, it is important that families screen their children before sending them to dance class and keep them home if they are ill or have a fever. A good rule of thumb is to keep children (who attend school) home from dance class if they were home from school.
Students and staff are required to be fever-free for 72 hours without the use of fever-reducing medication before returning to the studio.
Reporting COVID-19 positive tests: All students and staff are asked to report a positive COVID-19 test to The Children’s Ballet immediately. When the school receives notice of a confirmed COVID-19 case, we will contact the Hendricks County Health Department for updated guidance and follow their recommendations. The Children’s Ballet will also notify families of a positive COVID-19 case within the student body or teaching staff. For COVID-19 symptom details, please visit the CDC website: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/symptoms-testing/symptoms.html.
