School Programs

Ballet Austin believes the arts and arts education are essential for the intellectual and social development of all human beings. We are committed to offering educators resources and opportunities to provide young people with arts experiences, specifically in dance.


Research demonstrates that students benefit socially and academically from sustained involvement in the arts. Students in arts-rich environments have higher concepts of their academic ability, are achieving at higher rates on standardized test scores, and are more engaged in schools.

You can learn more about the programs we offer for school in the sections below. In addition to the programs listed, we are able to create custom experiences for your students.
