Thank you so much for teaching Isabel during her first year and a half of ballet. She has come a long way from that shy girl who used to cry in class! She has really blossomed with your patient and loving teaching style. She has also received excellent technical training. We will forever be grateful to you!
—Deb, parent of Isabel, age 7

The Academy of Ballet Fantastique, official school of Ballet Fantastique, is now enrolling for the 2016-17 school year – Students joining us this year will be taught by professional instructors at Ballet Fantastique, the Hult Center's newest Resident Company. At The Academy of Ballet Fantastique, kids learn the wonderful language of dance from caring professional teachers in limited class sizes—all while acquiring important skills for life, including athleticism, flexibility, coordination, creative thinking, musicality, expression, and self-confidence!

QUICK FACTS

Philosophy: Learning in our program is motivated, focused, and progressive—so kids are challenged, but never overwhelmed. Fun music and imagery spark their interest (and hold their attention).

Student-to-teacher ratio: Unlike other studios, Ballet Fantastique classes are limited to just ten students per class to ensure extensive individual attention and a faster learning pace for each student.

Instructors: Our friendly instructors are highly experienced in nurturing children as they learn and grow. Instructors

Locations: Most kids' classes take place in our bright and beautiful professional Annex Studio at 60 E. 10th Ave; some classes are held at our City Center for Dance Studio at 960 Oak. Please see below for class locations. Map/Directions
