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.

*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. Currently, all individuals are required to wear masks inside TBT facilities, regardless of vaccination status. All masks must 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 when the COVID-19 landscape improves in Dallas-Fort Worth.*

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 elementary-aged dancers with Down syndrome. 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.

Our Adaptive Dance classes for the 2020-2021 school year have concluded, but stay tuned for upcoming information about future classes. Please contact Alexis Leffel, School Assistant, at with questions.


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.

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