Founded in 1980, the Portland School of Ballet has been the premier dance education center of the Portland community for over three decades. Professional and inclusive, the School is dedicated to bringing dance to people of all ages and skill levels, while maintaining its focus on training young men and women for professional careers. The School’s alumni have gone on to join companies such as Dance Theater of Harlem, Pacific Northwest Ballet, or continued their studies at institutions such as The Hartt School, Butler University, Boston Ballet, and Pittsburgh Ballet Theater, among others. In a unique partnership with schools across Southern Maine, our CORPS program allows for qualified high school students to pursue pre-professional dance training as a complement to their academic studies.
