Absolutely phenomenal teaching. I excelled more than I had ever hoped whilst studying, attending and learning here. Gives great opportunities for young dancers with high potential to succeed and become world renowned dancers in the future.
The Royal Ballet School is a division of the Royal Ballet Company, based in London. The school provides rigorous classical ballet training, in hopes to place graduates in famed ballet companies worldwide.
I go to the royal ballet school and I also have had a year at the American theatre ballet and I would say that the royal ballet school is the best.
I would love to go hereV19 Comments
Joffrey Academy of dance is not only one of the most famous ballet school because popular people like Chloe from Dance Moms is in there. It also because the teachers at this ballet school have a high quality dance citizenship and are very good demonstrators as well. They don't have many performances because they practise well and when they're in a competition they sure do place in the top 3.
The Joffrey Academy of Dance is a New York City- and Chicago-based contemporary ballet school that continues to push the standard of excellence in dance education and performance.
Our family has loved the experience of our daughters attending Joffrey Academy of Dance, Chicago, Summer Intensives! Thank you, Joffrey, for the excellent training and overall positive experience!
My daughter attends the academy. It's a wonderful institution.V10 Comments
I love American Ballet Theater. I think this should be near the top. It is definitely one of the best ballet schools at least in America. I am performing with them and doing a Summer Program. Personally, I think ABT is one of the best ones in America because it doesn't just like one certain body type. They welcome in all different types of bodies.
In New York City, the American Ballet Theatre offers a premier dance technique education program. Known for its Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis School's preprofessional programs, this school breeds the best dancers in the world.
I love the American ballet theatre! It is definitely one of my top options for college.V3 Comments
The Juilliard School has become a historical benchmark in performing arts. This New York City school produces big-name dancers and performers, including Siena Cherson Sigel and Paul Taylor. The school features precollege and college divisions in dance genres ranging from modern, tap, jazz, contemporary and more.
I am 16 years old if been dancing for 6 years and love dancing with my hole heart and won't mind doing it for a living...I'd love to go to your school and it would be amazing if you could send me a contact number to call you for more info my phone number is:083 2731 879
I hope I go here I am 13 years old and I have been dancing since I was a little girl so like almost 10 years I am amazing and I teach my little cousin how to dance I want into this school so bad
Juilliard has some of the best dancersV8 Comments
Absolutely exceptional. My daughter is blessed to attend this institution. The buildings are modern and beautiful and the studios are state of the art. The SI is the audition for full time acceptance so it is NOT a "money maker". One only gets in if being considered for full time. Students come from around the world and the school sits on judges panel at top comps (YAGP, Prix, etc), so students are also top prize winners from prestigious comps. Younger grades have performing opportunities with National Ballet of Canada in The Nutcracker. The teachers are exceptional and the academics and social environment excellent. This is one of the very very best.
I have seen many top talent dancers go to this school for summer intensive training with the intent of getting into the residence year round program. They have all been turned away. They may have 10 open slots for a grade level and only fill 2 slots. This is a very good dance school but if you try to get in their school in the later grades you are wasting your money. Personally I think there summer intensive dance program is mainly a money maker not just for NBS but for other schools as well.
I have a daughter attending NBS and it has been a life-changing event for her. Not only is the technical dance instruction absolutely outstanding, but the school focuses on ensuring the students receive an enriching experience all around - in ballet, academically and socially. By emphasizing some of the softer skills such as empathy and compassion, the school ensures its students are healthy in body, mind and spirit.
It is an amazing schoolV14 Comments
Russians are the best in ballet. And most of Russian stars came from Bolshoi Ballet Academy. So it is obviously the best and most prestigious ballet school in the world.
I think the academy is amazing. Russians are the real experts in ballet, look at the history. and the school has amazing teachers. I ve heard many Americans transfer there and prefer it rather then American academies
The Bolshoi is amazing... More like fantastic!
I'm 13 and I do ballet, my dream is to go hereV5 Comments
I personally think that this school is where ballet started so it has the best and most classical ballet.
The most prestigious, where classical dance originated. The best school without doubt, and one of the most demanding.
Amazing and TOUGH! Graduate from here and you've done something.
I am 13 am I am training to go here! It's the bestV4 Comments
Boston Ballet teaches ballet students to fit into the new generation of dancing. Students work hard with amazing, talented teachers, and have three beautiful studios. The Boston Ballet's company is breath taking, and hard working people, whom inspire and nurture young dancers to reach for their dreams.If your searching for a school to encourage, support, and challenge your dancer to become one of the greats, come to Boston Ballet.
Amazing instruction. Peter Stark is heading up the boys program and will continue to mold amazing, versatile danseurs that the world will admire.
With renowned visiting instructors and absolutely amazing facilities, Boston Ballet School draws in talent from around the world. There is no better place than Boston for education and that holds true for Ballet.
This school molds dancers to fit into the next generation of dancing.V1 Comment
Prestigious and historical school
The School of American Ballet is finest ballet school in the United States. More top dancers, choreographers, and ballet masters have come out of this school than any other school in the US. This school is one of the finest in the world. I do not understand your ranking.
Who made this list? The SAB should be right up at the top!
SAB should be #1! They are much better than any other American school!
Best of the big ballet schools in the country hands down!V4 Comments
Australian ballet school is in my opinion one of the very best dance schools in the world. From the costumes to the long hours that the dances put in to produce such wonderful performances it really is quite amazing.
As well as nearly all the best ballet schools in the world the Australian ballet school is quite hard to get in to, as they only except the best of the best. Overall I definitely believe that Australian ballet school is one of the very best school to teach ballet in the world
I study at the Australian Ballet School and it has been an amazing experience, we have teachers from all over the world, including ex Mariinsky principals, and a very authentic Australian style. It is relatively new, with its 50th anniversary this year in 2014, but has already made a name for itself and stands quite close to the best European schools.V2 Comments
ALDC is NOT a successful studio. Abby owes all of her success to Dance Moms. Just because the kids are famous and win rigged competitions doesn't mean they are even close to being the best.
Successful dancers plus great technique!
It's seems like a wonderful company as well as the fact that Abby Lee Miller produced many sucessful dancers. She prepares her dancers for the harsh world of dance.
Very good dance schoolV7 Comments
Another American ballet company, the Kirov Academy of Ballet, is a school based in Washington, D.C. that offers part-time and full-time instruction to children from grades 7-12. The Academy is distinctive among professional dance schools in that it has its own in-house academic and residence program, fostering the growth of young ballerinas.
My daughter is attending here soon she is an amazing dancer and this is an amazing school... Should also be in top 3...
I am a student here and 75% of their dancers become principal dancers.V1 Comment
I've so far only been to the royal Winnipeg ballet once, for the 2015 two week dance intensive. By the end of the program, I felt like it became my second home. The counselors were amazing, the staff was excellent and the teachers were great and supportive. It was a very nice environment and they really care about you. There was even a doctor and Physio if you were sick or hurt. I went home with a lot of great new steps and knowledge. Great school and wonderful experience!V2 Comments
The English National Ballet is a classical ballet company founded by Dame Alicia Markova and Sir Anton Dolin and based at Markova House in South Kensington, London, England. Along with the Royal Ballet, Birmingham Royal Ballet and Scottish Ballet, it is one of the four major ballet companies in Great Britain.
Brent Street is an Australian performing arts school based in Sydney. The school started in 1986 and since then has expanded its range of styles to ballet, jazz, hip-hop, tap, musical theater, singing, drama and acrobatics. The school now holds modern dance studios, a theater and a recording studio and rehearsal space for their subsidiary program through the Talent Development High School. With more than 1, 000 students, this school is the premier dance studio in Australia.
I read and learned that the San Francisco Ballet was the first ballet companies in America
Most people in the know consider SFB #3 behind Bolshoi and Royal. Odd it wasn't mentioned on this list.
SFB should be right behind SAB which should be #2 or #3 behind the Royal Ballet School and the Kirov
Europe's Leading Music and Dance school, internationally recognised and iconic for its unique and diverse training.
Inspiring school, everyone is really hardworking and the teaching and facilities are incredible, as well as a good graduate output into ballet companies, needs to be higher!
