Take your passion for ballet to the next level

You’ll study with experienced ballet teachers—all of whom have worked with major professional companies themselves. You’ll be exposed to the very best in traditional and contemporary ballet styles. And you’ll perform in at least three staged productions each year on the stage of the Musical Arts Center (MAC)—the nation’s largest university performance space.
Plus, when you graduate, you’ll take your place among our large network of talented alumni currently working and performing all over the world.
