Ballet teaches balance.

Our students learn how to balance school, family, friends and ballet.

Youth Division

NEW for the 2019-20 school year, Youth Division is a new pilot program designed for several types of dancers:

  • Students age 9+ who are new to ballet study.
  • Students with experience in the Student or Academy Divisions who wish for a lighter class schedule.
  • Students using ballet to enhance skills in other activities, such as skating, gymnastics, acting, martial arts, etc.

Performance opportunities may become available in the Baumgartner Center for Dance Performance Studio but Youth Division participants are not eligible to audition for Milwaukee Ballet Company performances or participate in the annual Student Showcase.

Students with previous dance experience outside of MBSA should call 414-649-4077 to schedule a free placement class to determine the appropriate level of study.

With this developing program, not all levels are yet available at each location.  Please contact 414-649-4077 to discuss options if you don’t see a level you need at the location most convenient for you.
