Dalia Rawson, Executive Director

Welcome to The New Ballet  - San Jose, a classical ballet organization in San Jose, California. At The New Ballet - San Jose, we believe that ballet is for everyone.

The New Ballet - San Jose's mission is to provide classical ballet training and exposure to our diverse San Jose community.  By providing classes, performances, and opportunities for families in our community to connect with their creative selves, we aim to strengthen our individual connections with those closest to us, with our community and with ourselves.
 


The New Ballet School - San Jose

The New Ballet School - San Jose (NBS) provides unparalleled training for serious pre-professional ballet students. NBS is proud to feature the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum and is one of only five schools nationwide designated as an American Ballet Theatre Certified School.

Training at NBS focuses on developmentally appropriate instruction and dancer health for each student. Our certified teaching staff has many years experience bringing high quality artistic training to students ranging from 18 months to 22 years old.  The majority of our staff have danced professionally and understand first hand the elements required for an artist's development. 


“I applaud the commitment of The New Ballet School to the community of San Jose. The faculty's passion for the art form of classical ballet is surpassed by the passion they have for the wellbeing of the student population, so that each student can achieve his or her maximum potential.”

-Raymond Lukens, Artistic Director of the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum
