Columbia Ballet School

Our Mission

Columbia Ballet School is committed to helping students develop technical skills, artistry, discipline, self-confidence, and respect for themselves and others. While these qualities are the basis for dance education, they also are critical to the development of the student as a person. Our ultimate goal is to support the development of healthy and happy people, and we do this through a partnership with the dancers and their parents.
