A Ballet Faculty certified in all levels of the American Ballet Theater National Training Curriculum boasts extensive experience in professional ballet careers and as dance educators. With a proven success record for placing students in professional ballet companies including San Francisco Ballet, Houston Ballet II, Oklahoma City Ballet, Semperoper Ballet, The Joffrey Ballet Trainee Program, Pacific Northwest Ballet's PD Program, Silicon Valley Ballet, Ballet San Jose and The Royal New Zealand Ballet, the Senior Pre-Professional Division Faculty offers serious bay area ballet students an elite training experience that maintains a strong focus on dancer health and child development.
