About Our School
We follow the
philosophy of Danilova and Balanchine, who believed that the quality of
ballet instruction was more important than the quantity. This
philosophy is followed by some of the most selective schools in the
United States, including the School of American Ballet in New York
City. We encourage our students to have other interests in addition to
ballet, knowing that not everyone plans a career in dance. We also
provide daily classes for intermediate and advanced students who are
very serious about their studies.
The syllabus used
at our school is based on the Russian system of dance training, which
is taught at most major professional schools. We also incorporate other
styles of ballet into our classes to ensure that our students are able
to adapt to different dance and choreographic techniques. Please visit
page for details.
Location and Facilities
Our ballet campus
is located at 295B Polaris Avenue, Mountain View, California, where we
have three studios. For the safety and comfort of our dancers, each
studio has a sprung dance floor. Click here

students attend our school during the academic year. During the summer
we offer an intensive ballet program to approximately 100 students.
Families new to
our school should call or visit our ballet campus to obtain
registration forms (can also be downloaded here). These forms must be completed
and returned to the school prior to admission. Pacific Ballet Academy
reserves the right to determine the proper class level of all entering
students, regardless of their prior training.
Ballet is a
performing art, and we feel that participation in performances is an
important part of our students' training. We provide two opportunities
for performance experience each year at the Mountain View Center for
the Performing Arts: in the late Fall we stage The Nutcracker
and in the late Spring we stage our school recital, the Summer
Showcase. For more information, please visit our Performances
As a special
service to our students, we offer a monthly Wellness Clinic, where our
students can meet with Chiropractor Dr. Rick Chaeff to discuss
injuries, strengthening and stretching exercises, and proper nutrition.
There is no charge for this service, and parents are encouraged to
accompany their dancer to the clinic.
