About Texas Youth Ballet
Our Conservatory dancers develop confidence, coordination, leadership skills and self-discipline that benefit them throughout their lives. From the very beginning of their training, great care is taken in teaching our students to be strong in the fundamentals of ballet technique, kind to their fellow students, and confident in their ability to succeed. Auditions for entry into the Conservatory are held in May, August, and November for year-round training. Auditions for Summer Intensive are held in March.
Texas Youth Ballet’s Company dancers participate in fully-produced traditional and original ballets, arts outreach programs for schools, and free performances at community events. Our company members are dancers who wish to experience and share the rare and beautiful art of ballet at a high level of commitment and skill. Company auditions are open to all dancers interested in becoming a Texas Youth Ballet company member.
A Complete Arts Experience
The Primary Program (ages 3 - 5) is flexible, easy to enter and exit, and age appropriate. We focus on fundamentals and repetition, coordination games, and performance opportunities.
Honest and Nurturing
Our instructors are honest about student progress. We provide role models and include all dancers, regardless of age, in a supportive community. We want every child to benefit from their experience.
We provide an authentic, high-quality immersion experience. The quality of our program is evidenced by the rapid skill development of our students, and the praise they receive within the world of ballet.
' Looking for a dance Family? This is it. '
"My daughter has fallen in love with ballet a little bit more each and every year and her growth as a ballerina is evident. If you are looking for a place to become part of a dance "family" this is it."
' full-length performances - not just recitals '
"Great classical ballet school! The owner and instructors are very professional and focus on the students becoming excellent dancers. This school gives the kids the opportunity to be in full length performances and not just recitals."
' Positive environment promoting mentor-like relationships '
"Wonderful instruction in classical ballet. Small class size for plenty of personal attention. Heavy on the art, little to no emphasis on competition. Positive environment promoting mentor-like relationships between older and younger dancers."
