Learn the art of ballet

Texas Ballet Theater School

Training the next generation of artists, athletes, and aficionados.

Preschool to Pre-Professional

Texas Ballet Theater School offers dance programs in Dallas and Fort Worth with classes that range from beginner ballet to elite professional training. Our curriculum is designed to nurture aspiring artists by strengthening their technical dancing skills, creating a life-long appreciation for ballet, and helping develop critical life skills like confidence, discipline and creativity, which enrich their lives long after classes have concluded.

*As of March 1, 2022, students are not required to wear masks. They are welcomed for those who wish to wear them. Please scroll to the bottom of the page for more details.*

Preschool & Student Division

TBT offers students a chance to grow through the fundamentals of dance. Ballet education prepares students for the future, whether pursuing a professional career in ballet, attending college, or taking another path. Parents can enroll children in ballet classes where they learn the foundations of dance, while older students can sharpen their technique in our Student Division. Select your location to explore ballet class schedules and registration dates.

Professional Division

Aimed at preparing dancers for a professional ballet career, students admitted to the Professional Division will have an opportunity to advance their technique and artistry in one of two programs, the Professional Training Division and Studio Training Company.

Summer Programs

Throughout the summer, Texas Ballet Theater School offers a range of programs for aspiring pre-professional dancers and young artists. These classes are focused on younger students, and combine professional instruction with fun summer themes for a rewarding experience.

Adult Programs

Whether you’re new to ballet or making your return to the studio, Texas Ballet Theater’s adult classes offer a unique way to embrace your creative side while building strength and flexibility in a fun environment.

Adaptive Dance

Dance should include every student in an accessible and inspiring way. That’s why we’ve partnered with Cook Children’s to bring ballet to dancers ages 4-8 with Down syndrome or others with a diagnosis similar to, but not restricted to, Down syndrome. Each child is partnered with a family member, parent, or adult sibling to co-participate in the class with them.

Classes focus on movement and rhythmic skills while nurturing self expression. Funding for the Adaptive Dance Program is provided by the H. L. & Elizabeth M. Brown Foundation.

Details about Fall 2023 classes are coming soon. For more information about this program, please contact Alexis Leffel, Educational Programs Manager at


Designed to partner with local public schools and bridge the gap between students and dance, CityDance makes the arts more accessible than ever and supports the arts in our community. CityDance partners with schools and organizations across Dallas-Fort Worth to offer a free five-week series of introductory ballet classes to children who may otherwise lack access.

*TBT and TBT School health and safety policies are based on local COVID-19 conditions. These are subject to update as conditions change and we receive new guidance from our medical advisory team. As of March 1, 2022, students are strongly encouraged but not required to wear masks. If worn, masks should completely cover the nose and mouth and comply with the CDC guidelines for acceptable face coverings. We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to updating these policies as the COVID-19 landscape improves in Dallas-Fort Worth.*

Be kind. Be respectful. Be involved. Be brave. At TBT School, we hold our students and staff to a high standard.
