The purpose of Dance Connection Ballet Company is to serve as a training ground for the young dancer who seeks a pre-professional ballet environment. Dance Connection Ballet Company provides superior performance training for these young dancers and cultivates a public awareness and appreciation of ballet. DCBC is a full member company of The Ballet Alliance

Dance Connection Ballet Company was established in 2011 as an extension of the school and its affiliate Dance Connection Performing Company. The Ballet Company serves as a training ground for upper level students who attend an appropriate number of classes and maintain the required level of skill and proficiency. We provide intensive ballet training, individual coaching, professional performing opportunities, exposure to master classes from guest artists, and opportunities to work with top choreographers.

Each year classical repertory is selected to show the strengths of our dancers while also facilitating an opportunity for them to build upon their artistic skills and technical excellence. In addition to the classics, dancers also learn contemporary pieces of choreography and are encouraged to explore the limits of their ballet technique. These opportunities instill self discipline, teamwork, perseverance, respect, self confidence, and dedication to excellence.

The quality of our program is reflected in the accomplishments of its dancers; our dancers have been admitted to prestigious summer programs with American Ballet Theatre, Ballet Austin, LINES Ballet, and Ballet San Jose. We hope these dancers will become future ballet professionals, choreographers, teachers, costumers, or serve as artistic directors.
