Elementary Levels

We will be announcing upcoming Placement Classes in the coming weeks for the 2020/2021 school year. To join Boston Ballet School this summer, please register here.

Students enrolled in the Elementary levels attend classes two to three times per week with an increasing time commitment. These three critical levels lay the foundation of the classical ballet vocabulary, and move at a pace which facilitates understanding and safety. We offer separate boys classes beginning in Elementary 1. Students are also offered Modern elective classes to begin to explore diverse dance styles and enhance their ballet training. Performance opportunities are available through the school, along with the exclusive opportunity to audition for Boston Ballet productions, including The Nutcracker.
