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 ages four 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.

PNB Children's Division

Children’s Division

The Children’s Division is divided into Pre-K for age 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 emphasizes creativity and group interaction.
