Ballet Memphis School uses a kinesthetic approach to teaching traditional classical ballet technique, based on muscular physiology and use of energy. Teachers facilitate learning by utilizing concepts that adapt to and work with each student’s physique and natural aptitude for movement.

Our instruction is individualized to best encourage and facilitate each student’s development; and advancement through our levels is based on technical accomplishment, artistic development, emotional maturity, classroom interaction, personal work ethic and readiness for the challenges of the next level.

The benefits of ballet training extend far beyond the mastery of steps and positions. Classical ballet training also develops:

  • Beautifully-sculpted, strong, articulate, and flexible bodies
  • The joy of expressing oneself through movement
  • Commitment
  • Determination
  • An appreciation for the arts—as a performer and as an audience member
  • Patience
  • Attention to detail
  • Self-discipline
  • The ability to set & achieve goals in the quest for excellence

Fall Semester: August 17 through November 12, December 7–19
Spring Semester: January 4 through May 7
