Ballet Quad Cities School of Dance

Ballet Quad Cities School of Dance is dedicated to quality teaching of classical ballet. The syllabus used within the school is based on the principles of the Russian Vaganova technique and has been designed to introduce students to the language of dance and inspire them to be artists. The Vaganova technique, which draws from the roots of the French and Italian schools of ballet, teaches students to dance with their whole body in harmony with special attention to the details and subtleties of classical ballet.

Classical ballet provides the foundation for all other dance forms. Skills are built incrementally, in a manner very similar to academic development. The flexibility, strength, endurance, discipline and artistry developed in the ballet classroom will benefit a student for the rest of their lives.

The school offers a wide variety of classes from beginning through advanced levels. Currently, we offer classes in Creative Movement, Ballet, Pointe, Jazz, Hip-Hop, Conditioning, Yoga, Tap, Rhythm Tap and Adult Ballet. Each dancer is carefully evaluated by the faculty then placed in a class suitable for his or her technical ability. Our class sizes remain small so that each dancer receives the care and attention they deserve.

Our faculty is second to none in the Midwest. The professional staff provides a challenging dance environment for every level. Whether the student’s goal is to study dance as a hobby or to prepare for a professional dance career, we provide a solid foundation that emphasizes strong technique, while encouraging the individual dancer’s artistry and expression.

Our staff recognizes that we live in a society where television, technology, and video games compete with the arts during the development of our children. Our classes encourage children to grow and explore movement using their minds, imaginations, and bodies while instilling confidence and foundations for success - in dance as well as other areas.
