The Sarasota Ballet School offers a quality dance education for children ages 3 and above. We believe that dance training should not only be fun and creative, but also develop students' confidence and celebrate their individuality.

Our school children develop life-long friendships, all based around their love for dancing. Parents make new friends too and we are proud to call ourselves one big family. 

American Ballet Theatre ® National Training Curriculum

We now teach the internationally recognized American Ballet Theatre® National Training Curriculum. American Ballet Theatre was designated America’s National Ballet Company by an Act of Congress in 2006. The Sarasota Ballet School faculty are officially certified to teach level Pre-Primary through Level 3 of this wonderful curriculum.

The ABT ® National Training Curriculum is a breakthrough program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. The ABT® National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels.
