Fort Wayne Balletís roots in the community run deep, and our origins speak to that. The Fort Wayne Ballet has a safe yet aggressive syllabus, created with the physical, cognitive, and social development of children at its heart, guides our educational efforts. Students range from young children exploring movement to pre-professional students looking to dance as their career. We also have adult students and many who do not choose a vocational education, but take ballet because of their love of this artistic experience. Young men participating in the program are on full scholarship and limited scholarships and work study programs are available for young ladies. Academy classes offer students the ability to dance to live accompaniment during their classwork. This element is rare at the regional level, yet we know students benefit by learning how to dance to varying music syntax and rhythms and not just pre-recorded music.We believe it is important for the student to teacher ratio to be small. More individual attention to student needs translates into safer and better dance training. Pre-Ballet classes are naturally smaller then the more graded levels, however we limit class size to ensure necessary attention to detail and development.
