Conservatory, Advanced & Pre-Professional Classical Ballet Training for Children & Teens

Fourth Division Ballet for girls, boys and young adults ages 10-18.

Conveniently located in the heart of Southern Westchester County, NY, Scarsdale Ballet Studio offers unique opportunities for very committed ballet students who wish to make dance their primary after-school activity.  Whether aspiring to a professional career in dance or planning to pursue their dance studies in college, Conservatory and Pre-Professional students have the unique privilege to study and perform George Balanchine ballets. Our advanced dancers are consistently accepted into the most prestigious summer intensives, college programs, and professional companies. Committed students are also welcome to discuss participating in the Youth America Grand Prix Competition.

Fourth Division Conservatory, Advanced & Pre-Professional Ballet for ages 10-18

Our Fourth Division Conservatory, Advanced & Pre-Professional classes are geared toward serious dance students who have a thorough understanding of ballet terminology and technique. Our faculty will teach and mentor each student towards the fulfillment of their specific dance goals, whether it be a professional career, college admission, or simply for the physical, emotional and artistic rewards of formal dance training.
