the absolute BEST BALLET TRAINING in Hampton Roads

Ballet Virginia is well known for providing elite classical ballet training in a loving environment. With over 100 years of combined experience, our professional faculty maintains the highest standards while teaching to the whole child. We surround our students with culture, give them a role in our community, and instill them with a love of dance that is unparalleled in the Hampton Roads area.

At Ballet Virginia we believe that stage performance skills are an important part of dance education. Therefore, all of our students have performance opportunities in our favorite productions from The Nutcracker to Sleeping Beauty. By also working with costumes, sets, lighting, and live music, we take our students beyond the classroom.

We offer dance classes for children, dance classes for adults, and even dance classes for toddlers. Our curriculum is equally diverse, with ballet classes, modern classes, pointe classes, and pilates. And we are proud to announce the addition of adaptive dance classes for special needs children.

PROFESSIONAL BALLET COMPANY in residence at Ballet Virginia

After 11 years of offering elite ballet training to the Hampton Roads community, we are proud to announce the debut of our very own professional ballet company. Get ready for exciting new repertoire this season, including “Diversity in Dance,” choreographed by Lydia Roberts Coco, former Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre Principal Dancer; “Masquerade,” a Halloween themed production; as well as your classic favorites like The Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty.

Our brand new full-time company consists of 10 amazing dancers from the Hampton Roads area and beyond. They are bringing the finest training and experience to our stages, and we are honored to be launching with them! Not only will our professional dancers be bringing you great performances, but they will also be stepping in as teachers and choreographers as Ballet Virginia expands its academy to two locations.

“We’re excited to foster mentoring relationships between our students and our company members,” says Suzanna Lownsbury Co-Artistic Director. “Having these dancers living here in Hampton Roads will really give our students a window into the daily life of a professional dancer. And now our students will have a wonderful place to begin their professional careers when they are ready.”
