Boston Ballet School

Boston Ballet School promotes excellence and access to the art form of ballet through dance education. We offer comprehensive classical ballet training through a progressive curriculum designed for ages 2 through adult.

Our goal is to develop versatile and well-rounded dancers and to provide our students with the immeasurable value of a dance education that extend beyond technique.
Boston Ballet School has four state-of-the-art locations serving the greater Boston area: Our original home in the South End of Boston, in the MetroWest town of Newton, the South Shore Community of Norwell, and the North Shore Community of Marblehead. Founded over 53 years ago by E. Virginia Williams, it’s the largest dance school of its kind in North America that consistently provides the highest quality training at every level, in every program through:

  • • Internationally renowned faculty

  • • Strong ballet curriculum with enrichments in character and modern dance and Pilates conditioning

  • • Live piano accompaniment in ballet classes

  • • Student Wellness Program in partnership with Children's Hospital, Boston

  • • Performing opportunities through The Nutcracker and other productions

  • • Unique connection to a world-class company

Boston Ballet School graduates have gone on to successful careers in various areas. Many have joined professional dance companies such as Boston Ballet, Cincinatti Ballet, Ballet Austin, Houston Ballet, Joffrey Ballet, North Carolina Dance Theatre, Pennsylvania Ballet, National Ballet of Canada and Hamburg Ballet, while others pursue academic careers at Harvard University, Boston College, Indiana University and Stanford among others.

Boston Ballet Founder E. Virginia Williams established Boston Ballet School in 1953, ten years before the official launch of the Company, with the vision of establishing the highest quality dance education facility in the region.

The program was officially incorporated as Boston Ballet School in 1979.

The Center for Dance Education was established in 1983 to administer both Boston Ballet School and a unique array of summer and outreach programs that engage and serve the community including: Summer Dance Program, Ballet Stories, Ballet Journeys, Summer Dance Workshop, Technique & Pointe Workshop, Citydance, Taking Steps and Adaptive Dance.

Boston Ballet School is the largest ballet school in North America. Over 1,600 students are currently enrolled in our school year program. The total school population exceeds 10,000 annual participants when adult classes, summer programs and outreach students are taken into account.

The School has four studio locations - Boston (South End), MetroWest (Newton), South Shore (Norwell) and North Shore (Marblehead)- and operates its outreach programs in multiple locations throughout Boston and the North Shore.

Each year over 300 Boston Ballet School students delight in the opportunity to participate in Boston Ballet's The Nutcracker, an acclaimed Boston holiday tradition.
