THE TALLAHASSEE BALLET SCHOOL
The official training ground for The Tallahassee Ballet company
…offering something for everyone,
from beginners to advanced dancers.
The Tallahassee Ballet School is the official training ground for The Tallahassee Ballet company. It provides students with a kinetic understanding of how their bodies move through space, teaching classical ballet principles and techniques. Ballet is the foundation of most dance forms and assists in developing muscles and postures that allow dancers to move with grace and poise—on and off the stage. The Tallahassee Ballet instructors follow the ABT® National Training Curriculum and are classically trained.
For the young ones, the Primary Division features classes that combine movement and music to help students develop coordination, body awareness, rhythm, flexibility, and self-confidence while learning dance vocabulary. Classes progress to introduce students to foundational dance steps and terminology.
TTB School Pre-Professional Division is by audition or invitation only. Extremely dedicated advanced students are invited into this program according to individual progress. These classes are designed for students who wish to pursue a professional career in dance and aspire to be a part of (or are already members of) the TTB Company.
The Tallahassee Ballet offers a variety of opportunities for dancers to train over the summer – Classes; Turning Pointe, a two-week Summer Intensive; week-long, full-day summer workshops at the student and pre-professional levels; and full- and half-day Dance Camps for young dancers featuring a variety of themes.
Adult/Teen Ballet classes are for seasoned dancers, new beginners, and returning students. Beginner/Intermediate level classes utilize a slower pace throughout class to introduce and/or reinforce Ballet terminology and technique. Intermediate/Advanced level classes build on the foundations of Ballet terminology and technique while moving through a faster-paced class.
