Located on State Street in the heart of downtown Chicago, Ballet Chicago is an internationally recognized professional track school of ballet that creates exceptional dancers and people. We offer year-round and summer dance classes for children ages 3 and up. By teaching impeccable technique as well as fundamental life skills, our students go on to find success in dance and life. Founded by Daniel Duell, one of the world's finest ballet artistic directors, Ballet Chicago believes every aspiring artist deserves the opportunity to explore his or her fullest potential, and strives to make classical ballet training accessible to all talented students who have the desire to dance.
Year-Round & Summer Ballet Programs for Children & Adults:
Children's Theme Camp (ages 4-6)
Join us for an enriching summer experience exploring the magical world of ballet!
Our dancers enjoy days filled with dance classes to live music, costume decorating, and acting out classic ballet and children's stories.
Each camp session focuses on a different theme. Some of our favorites include Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty! Ballet Chicago's Children's Theme Camp strikes the perfect balance between structure and creativity.
Junior Intensive (ages 7-12)
We believe that all students deserve the opportunity to develop their technical abilities and explore their creativity.
Ballet Chicago's Junior Intensive Program provides students the foundation necessary to excel in both areas.
We inspire them to cultivate beautiful posture, teach them how to combine purity of form with individual expressiveness, and show them how to increase focus for their minds and their bodies.
Both in the classroom and in performance, Ballet Chicago builds technique, artistry, awareness and self- confidence.
The Junior Intensive curriculum includes Ballet Technique, Repertoire, Modern Dance, and Classical Spanish Dance, Body Conditioning and Stretch classes.
Two class levels are available; placement is based on age, amount of training, and level of advancement. Additionally, Pointe and Pre-Pointe classes are available for those enrolled in Level B.
Ballet Chicago Boot Camp:
Every year, Ballet Chicago has provided classes for our year-round students as they prepare for attendance at summer programs across the US.
Last year we offered the Ballet Chicago Boot Camp to the public for the first time. It was a resounding success, and we are once again offering this wonderful week of classes to Chicagoland's most dedicated dancers.
Come join us! Get in shape, stay in shape, prepare to impress! Class size is limited. No audition required, serious ballet dancers only. No housing available.
Ballet Chicago's five-week Summer Course offers the serious ballet student an unparalleled training experience.
Our comprehensive curriculum includes Ballet Technique, Pointe, Repertory, Men's Technique, Pilates, Stretch Classes, Modern (Horton and Graham), Spanish dance, and Adagio (upper levels only).
Classes are demanding, and results are palpable. The Summer Course is open to dancers ages 11 and up. Acceptance is by audition only.
Advanced Intensive Class:
Ballet Chicago's two-week Advanced Intensive is a perfect complement to our five-week Summer Course.
Dancers immerse themselves in a complete Ballet Curriculum: Technique, Pointe, Men's Technique, Adagio and Repertory, with supplemental classes in Stretch and Pilates.
Learning and perfecting repertory is a key element of the Advanced Intensive. Students are coached daily to gain the skill, musicality, and self-confidence, that enables them to transform classroom technique into artistry.
