Yellowstone Ballet School
WELCOME to one of Montana's oldest ballet schools. Founded in 1987, Yellowstone Ballet School offers specialized classes in classical ballet. Although ballet is our main curriculum, we understand that very few people will become professional dancers. Therefore we work to uncover the potential for each student to become a very good dancers, have a great time learning the art, and profit in many ways.
Ballet benefits everything - other types of dance, sports such as soccer, basketball, gymnastics, and even football. It also benefits general work habits because the study of ballet develops self-discipline, concentration, the awareness of how to better a skill, and confidence for other performing arts.
Besides ballet we offer tap, jazz, and Broadway dance with Sarah Skofield and master classes with various ballet artists.
Students trained at YBS have been awarded scholarships to the National Ballet of Canada, San Francisco Ballet School, Princess Grace Academy of Classical Dance in Monaco, Ellison Ballet Professional Training Program, Interlocken School of Arts, Orlando Ballet, Houston Ballet and Mercyhurst College. They have been accepted into prestigious ballet programs with School of American Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet, and England's Royal Ballet School.
