Decatur School of Ballet

Decatur School of Ballet has been in continuous operation since 1947. Over sixty years ago Hilda Gumm and Marie Roberts started the school with a few ballet students in a small room over the ice cream shoppe in Downtown Decatur.

In 1958, the school moved into its present location, which was designed by architect Everett Roberts (Marie's husband) to be a dance studio. In 1980 present owners Kathleen and Ron Everett purchased the school where Kathleen had studied since age 6.

Decatur School of Ballet, the oldest classical ballet school in DeKalb County, offers classes for children and adults in classical ballet, jazz, tap, creative movement, ballroom, and modern dance. Headquarters in Downtown Decatur feature spacious studios with suspended wood flooring. The school is structured on a nine-month curriculum (September through May) and offers special summer programs.

Careful attention is given to placing each dancer in appropriate classes based on age, technical level and ability. Individual evaluations are done on each student. Providing quality dance instruction by professionals in a friendly atmosphere is the foundation of our school.

Decatur School of Ballet serves the needs of students who wish to dance "just for fun" and those who aim toward becoming professional dancers and teachers. Our school welcomes people from varying racial, cultural and economic backgrounds. Although we are in the business of teaching dance, the development of each student as an individual is at the core of our endeavors. Experience in and knowledge of the arts help us express our individual creative and cultural human potential.

It is essential that students come to class on time. Lack of proper warm-up at the beginning of class can cause injuries; also late arrivals disrupt class concentration. Students over ten minutes late will be asked to sit and observe. Permission to leave early must be obtained prior to class time.
