Michiana’s Premiere Classical Ballet School and Home of the Southold Dance Theater Pre Professional Ballet Company

Our dance program for children develops musicality, rhythm, movement skills, coordination, expression and creativity. It also encourages class participation, focus and confidence.


It is perfectly suited for children 3 to 7 years old.  All children’s program classes are open to boys and girls.


Faculty members use the American Ballet Theater syllabus as a template for their instruction, which provides a solid foundation for all styles of dance.  Children’s Division classes create a nurturing environment that enables each child to begin a lifelong love for dance.


All classes meet once per week and are offered at the Southold Studios located in the Historic Colfax Cultural Center and at Stanley Clark School.
