Welcome from the Director

I am thrilled to introduce to you the Bayou City Ballet School! Our mission is to share the beauty of classical ballet with the entire community. The school's exceptional faculty provides the highest quality dance education available, and the limited class sizes allow for personalized instruction. I encourage you to explore our website, drop us a line, or call with any questions you have.

School Year Programs


Children's Program

Beginning at age 4, our children's program fosters a love of dance by providing great ballet training in a warm and encouraging environment. We provide your child with the best foundation through a progressive curriculum that prioritizes physical and emotional well-being. Students get to experience the joy of performance through participation in the end-of-year Showcase.

Pre-Professional Program

For students who demonstrate a passion for ballet, along with the requisite focus and potential, we offer a pre-professional training schedule. Levels based on ability and physical maturity rather than age. An audition or private assessment is required. The curriculum is carefully designed to ensure students receive complete training that will support a desire to pursue a college dance program or a professional dance career down the road. Performance opportunities include the Nutcracker and Spring Showcase. Advanced students may participate in approved ballet competitions and festivals.


Adult Classes

Bayou City Ballet School offers morning  ballet classes for the local adult community. Love ballet but have never danced before? Register for one of our 8-week Introduction to Ballet sessions taught by our director. Need a refresher? Try the Beginning Ballet series. Been dancing for years? Drop-in to our intermediate/advanced open class. There are classes for everyone in the community at all levels! Our highly qualified instructors strive to give each student attention and will help ensure placement in the correct class.

Boys Program

We know how important it is for young male ballet dancers to feel supported in their pursuit of dance, which is often not fully understood by their peers. That is why we offer ballet classes specifically for boys, taught by highly qualified male faculty. While boys are welcome at all levels of the school, beginning in the pre-professional levels we provide supplemental all-boys classes. When the young men are physically ready, they begin to receive specialized training in men's ballet technique, pas de deux (partnering), and upper body conditioning.
