Schedules and registration for the new school year are online! We are planning to have all levels in-person. Make sure you follow the dress code and read our COVID-19 guidelines before coming to class.

Dancers in both the Upper School and Ballet Virginia II must be committed and possess the physical requirements needed to facilitate classical ballet movement. They must train year round, including a pre-approved summer study program or continue their training with Ballet Virginia’s Summer Programs.
