Dream Ballet School seeks to offer outstanding ballet education in a nurturing environment, through a progressive curriculum from pre-ballet to pre-professional levels.
We believe that a ballet education should foster individual growth and supply a foundation, not only for the various artistic forms of dance but for many of life's pursuits: cultivating discipline, professionalism, confidence, teamwork, perseverance, self care, passion and joy.
We aim to provide this life shaping experience to anyone who has the passion and dedication to pursue it
Dream Ballet School is proud to include the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 9 level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development. The ABT® National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels. Pre-Primary through Level 3 will be taught by ABT® Certified Teacher, Emily Zimmermann Gilstrap, who has successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Pre-Primary through Level 3 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum.
