Maxine Mahon, Faculty Principal, has carefully guided the artistic and administrative development of the School into a fully professional school of dance. Under her hand, California Ballet School maintains successful pre-professional and apprentice programs that provide the caliber of training, technique, style, and environment needed for the most talented students to enter the world of professional dance.
In addition to training in classical ballet, the School offers a diverse curriculum that includes jazz, tap, body mechanics, Spanish dancing, and dance-related workshops in make-up, mime, and production. Special classes for young children emphasize rhythm, movement, and creative expression. Classes for adults provide excellent dance training in a more recreational atmosphere. The School has a comprehensive Tuition Assistance Program that includes merit scholarship, financial need, and student and/or parent work-study programs. Applications for tuition assistance consideration are available upon request.
The state-of-the-art Main Centre in Kearny Mesa is also home to the professional company, giving students the opportunity to observe professional dancers at work. The School also maintains branch facilities in El Cajon, Pacific Beach and La Mesa.
Class Levels.
- Children’s Division (Tiny Tots - Ballet D). The Children’s Division emphasizes creative expressive response to music and the development of strength, poise, and group interaction skills. Special attention is given to the physical, emotional and mental developmental needs of our youngest students
- Intermediate Division (Ballet 1 - Ballet 4). The primary focus of this division is on developing technique, musicality, proper placement, strength and poise. Pointe work is introduced in Ballet 4. Students in the Intermediate Division have the opportunity to broaden their dance skills by exploring various dance styles in addition to ballet. California Ballet School offers Spanish dance and five levels of Jazz dance as part of a complete curriculum of dance genres.
- Pre-Professional Division (Ballet 5 - Ballet 8). Focusing on professionally oriented students, the pre-professional division emphasizes commitment, artistic integrity, performance quality, and technical excellence. The curriculum in this division is designed to nurture and develop dancers for a professional career in dance. The intensive curriculum requires a high level of motivation. Students receive thorough training in classical ballet technique and repertoire, pointe, variations, pas de deux, Spanish dance, character dance, jazz dance, and body dynamics.
- Boys’ Division (Boys A - Boys D). We are proud to present our program just for boys aged 4-10. The arts, dance, and especially ballet, have often been regarded by boys in the United States to be a girls only endeavor.
- Adult Division (Adult 1 - Adult 3). California Ballet School offers ballet classes for adults who wish to enjoy the physical and aesthetic benefits of dance in a more recreational atmosphere. Three levels of instruction are available to accommodate adult beginners as well as adults with more advanced dance experience.
Many of the School's graduates have gone on to professional careers in dance with companies nationwide.
