Mission Statement

The Mission of the School of Cleveland Ballet is to educate its students by offering them quality ballet and dance training and intensive instruction in the highly structured and disciplined techniques of ballet, other dance and its related arts. This training creates a refined sensitivity and developed appreciation for the unique art of classical ballet among the students of both the dance school’s divisions: School of Cleveland Ballet Community Division and Cleveland Ballet School Professional Division.

Our goal is to instruct today’s youth through dance to:

Fulfill the aesthetic needs of major ballet and dance companies & college ballet and dance programs
Provide skills necessary for a successful career in the ever-evolving art of ballet and dance
Guide youth to become successful young adults
