Welcome to Boston Ballet School

The Official School of Boston Ballet

Through the vision of Boston Ballet Artistic Director Mikko Nissinen, we inspire, develop and sustain a love of dance in every student. While excellence in ballet training is crucial to our mission, we believe that our job as arts educators goes well beyond technique. Our philosophy and curriculum support the development of the whole student within a nurturing, educational environment. The breadth and depth of the education we provide, coupled with the expertise and support of our faculty and connection to a world-class company, makes it possible for us to offer unparalleled ballet training and dance education programs of the highest quality for a wide range of students.

At Boston Ballet School we believe our classes are more than ballet technique; we believe enhancing your child’s education with an arts education is a large part of a child’s development and continues through to our adult students. Arts education have proven to increase cognitive thinking, problem solving and public speaking. We believe dance classes develop beyond tendus and pirouettes, it also fosters time management, collaboration with peers, confidence and more.
