The School of Ballet Arizona is now enrolling students — from children to young adults — in its new school year training program.

Open auditions are Saturday, Aug. 10, and regular school year training begins Monday, Aug. 12.

These classes follow a comprehensive syllabus that has been developed to maintain the fundamental aspects of classical ballet technique and offer the highest quality training at every level, in every program, according to a press release.

“We are excited to welcome dancers of all ages to the 2024-25 school year at The School of Ballet Arizona,” said Maria Simonetti, School of Ballet Arizona director. “It is our passion to continue to uplift the next generation of professional dancers with a focus on training the whole dancers through wellness and conditioning curriculums, as well as main stage performance opportunities. We are thankful for the ability to carry on this uplifting opportunity.”

The School of Ballet Arizona is available to dancers of all ages through three different programs: children’s division, lower division, and upper division, which includes pre-professional training.

The Children’s Division is for ages four and up, with no prior experience required. This level offers an introduction to the art of ballet by promoting the exploration of creativity and expression through movement.

The Lower Division (ages eight and up) is divided into four levels and the syllabus is created to begin formal training in traditional classical ballet.

For the Upper Division and Professional Program, students must possess the determination to commit to a serious ballet program and may have the opportunity to perform alongside Ballet Arizona’s professional dancers as part of their training.

Students at The School of Ballet Arizona receive a rare opportunity to perform with student musicians in partnership with the Phoenix Youth Symphony Orchestras. Students are also able to have their pointe shoes fitted by official Freed of London USA representatives.

The School of Ballet Arizona also offers open classes for adult students of all experience levels, including adults who used to dance and would like to get back into the studio, to ballet novices.
Parents can take classes in the same state-of-the-art studios where their children train and enjoy the same high-level instruction.
