Dancers gather for a pre-performance moment.

With so many dance programs to choose from in the Capital Region, it can be difficult to decide which program will best suit your dancer and your family.

At Saratoga City Ballet, we believe that the right instruction and environment are essential to cultivating young dancers as they grow.

Our professional instructors have trained with world-class dance companies including: The School of American Ballet, The New York City Ballet, The New Jersey Ballet, The Walnut Hill School for the Performing Arts and The Joffrey Ballet.

Our instructors offer individualized instruction in a supportive environment – ensuring our students learn technique, self-expression and movement quality that prepares them for pre-professional and professional training.

Saratoga City Ballet offers our students performance opportunities in our annual Nutcracker production and Spring Production as well as outreach performances during The Victorian Streetwalk, as well as library and community programs, and the New York City Ballet Gala at SPAC.  We also offer classes in Modern, Jazz, Pointe / Pre-Pointe, Creative Movement and more.

Happy dancing!
