Maine State Ballet School

The Maine State Ballet's School for the Performing Arts offers instruction in ballet, jazz, tap, and musical theater to over 500 students from age 3 through advanced adult. The dance curriculum includes classical ballet training in the Balanchine style® as well as Broadway style tap and jazz. Advanced ballet students are invited to join the Maine State Ballet Company.

Adaptive movement classes are available for children with Down syndrome. Adult programs currently include ballet, tap, Pilates, Zumba and ballroom.

The school year runs from September through May with classes scheduled Monday - Saturday. With the exception of the three year olds, adult ballet, zumba and adaptive movement, students participate in an end of the year recital.

A six week summer ballet workshop for ballet students ages 8 & up is offered from early July through mid-August. Shorter sessions are held for younger dancers in late June.

Maine State Ballet's instructors are experienced dancers in all disciplines. Many have been trained by Artistic Director Linda MacArthur Miele, a former member of the New York City Ballet. Others received training at Boston Ballet, American Ballet Theater, and with David Howard. Broadway veteran Jonathan Miele directs the tap dance program.

Maine State Ballet was incorporated in 1986 as a 501(c) (3) non-profit organization. In early 2006, Maine State Ballet and its affiliate dance school, the Maine State School for the Performing Arts, blended into one not-for-profit institution. Maine State Ballet is run by a Board of Directors and is supported though dance school tuition, performance ticket sales, business partnerships and individual donors

Maine State Ballet's Mission is to enrich the Maine community through education, outreach and expanded enjoyment of the performing arts.

Maine State Ballet educates, entertains, and enriches the community through versatile and varied dance programs. We encourage students to become active, intelligent young artists who will emerge as leaders in their communities. Maine State Ballet's dance classes, outreach events, lecture demonstrations in the schools and Backstage children's concert series embody the fundamental element of our educational vision.
