Emerald Ballet Theatre | Schedule

Welcome to Emerald Ballet Academy!

Under the artistic direction of Viktoria Titova, Emerald Ballet Academy provides high-quality dance instruction to pre-professional, recreational or therapeutic students from ages 3 to adult. Esteemed Russian and American faculty teach classes in ballet, character, modern, contemporary, and stretching. We have special programs for boys and exceptional (special needs) students. Depending on age/level, EBA students have the opportunity to perform in up to two Emerald Ballet Theatre productions per year, Nutcracker and a spring production. Advanced dancers train to compete in Youth America Grand Prix.  

Emerald Ballet Academy welcomes every child who wants to dance. Level placement is based on age, ability, maturity, and number of classes taken per week. Starting at sixth grade, new students need to be evaluated by the Artistic Director for placement. Because we offer classes to students with differing abilities and dance goals, our levels don't follow a strict progression; students will not pass through each level as they progress. Our vigorous and accelerated B levels are designed to meet the needs of pre-professional students, and entrance is by teacher invitation only.
