Welcome to Ballet Arts!
Ballet Arts has provided dance education in the Conejo Valley for over 40 years (since 1962). We have classes in Ballet, Jazz and Tap for all ages, young and adult alike. Ballet Arts is competition-free; that is not to say our students are not competitive, just that we do not promote sports-like competitions that are more lucrative than educational. Rather our dance education is centered around stage performance. Professional quality dance productions with Conejo Civic Ballet Company provide students with theater experience and the opportunity to refine their dance technique. In the process they develop technical and social skills needed for collective participation towards a common goal. We feel these skills are more valuable to the community and to the individual. And besides, even though preparing for a major full-length ballet performance is hard work, our students find out that it is a lot of fun - fun that they share with other dancers.
While our core programs are in ballet, we also offer increasingly popular classes in jazz, contemporary and tap. We have special programs for the youngest members of our dance community starting at age 3 and also for adults who find they just can not live without dance or want to start learning now. So whatever your age, come and join us in a dance class just for you.
Rates for our classes vary depending on how many classes a week the student attends. See the Classes page for pricing details. For core ballet students who wish to perform with Conejo Civic Ballet Company the addition costs are:
- Performance Fee: $90 per production (all performances)
- Costume Fee: No special fee however, student must have nude leotard liner, garment bag, tights and shoes.
- Ticket Purchases: No minimum.
