Premier Pre-Professional Ballet Program


The Academy Ballet Conservatory is the premier pre-professional ballet training program in the Chicago area, with a comprehensive curriculum that includes Repertoire, Contemporary, and Character studies. Designed for students who already have a solid technical foundation and wish to pursue ballet seriously in some professional capacity, we begin assessing students from readiness at approximately age 11.  Please note that this program is by "invitation only," and an audition is required for admittance.


Students in this program may be invited to participate in Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) and other prestigious ballet competitions.  Many of our Conservatory dancers are accepted into world-class companies here in the US, as well as in Europe (view HERE).
