Charlotte School of Ballet

The Charlotte School of Ballet opened in September of 1968 by Gay Porter, offering two types of programs recreational and vocational. The recreational program is designed for the once- or twice-a-week student who enjoys dancing for fun, with a recital once a year. Children's ballet examinations are offered to these students.

The vocational program is designed for the serious ballet student who's priority is classical ballet. Examinations in both The Royal Academy of Dancing and the Cecchetti methods are encouraged for these students, as well as membership in the Charlotte Youth Ballet.

he Charlotte School of Ballet is a classical ballet school located at 627 South Sharon Amity in Charlotte, NC. We offer training to everyone who has an interest in the art of dance. Classes are primarily based on curricula from The Cecchetti Council of America and The Royal Academy of Dance.

The school was founded in 1968 by Gay Porter, offering the finest of training for young students through the professional level. Training begins with the Royal Academy of Dance syllabus, one that is used successfully in eighty-two countries throughout the world, and continues into the Cecchetti Method. Non-syllabus classes are an important part of the student's training also. Guest teachers are often brought in, to work with the advanced students during the year. Additionally, classes are also offered in tap, jazz, modern dance and Classical Spanish dance by experts in their field.

We ask students and families to please respect the facilities. No Food or Drink allowed in the studio. Please pick up after yourselves and throw away trash. Adequate supervision should be provided for siblings.

Please check that you have all of your belongings before you leave. Clothes left for more a few weeks will be taken to a donation center.

The Charlotte School of Ballet is a very active studio. We could use your help! We are the home studio for The Charlotte Youth Ballet, the host studio for examinations of The Royal Academy of Dance, London England as well as for the Cecchetti Council of America. Additionally dancers attend the North Carolina School of the Arts Dance Festival in Winston Salem each year. We also have an extensive costume collection which frequently needs organizing and often times costumes are in need of repairs. If you would like to help us we would greatly appreciate your assistance.
