Pacific Northwest Ballet School believes that ballet is for everyone. That’s why we’ve developed a wide range of classes and programs, designed to be enjoyed by dance lovers aged two through adult. Our three main school divisions (Children’s, Student, and Professional) are meticulously designed to challenge the physical and technical abilities of each student, and we offer year-round additional programming for all ages.

Children’s Division

The Children’s Division is divided into Pre-K for ages 2–4, Creative Movement and Children’s Division Boys’ Class for ages 5–6, Pre-Ballet for age 7; No auditions are required. These programs are a prelude to formal ballet instruction and introduce children to music and movement through a structured progression that stresses creativity and group interaction.

Student Division

The Student Division consists of Level I through VIII, beginning at age 8. Auditions are required for Level I and above or for students age 8 years or older. Classes in this division are carefully graded by age, physical strength and development.

Professional Division

The School’s Professional Division offers advanced instruction for those students planning a professional dance career. Students invited to the two-year Professional Division program concentrate on perfecting technique and developing artistry through intensive full-day instruction.
