The studio currently boasts 2 large dance rooms and an extra large dance room that can hold small performances, all with sprung floors. The ballet program opened in August 2014, under the name of Studio 321, with 35 students and 3 instructors. The current teachers have provided the students with premier classical ballet training and, as a result, has more than doubled our enrollment. Due to our growth, in June 2018, our program officially changed its name to,
”The School of Ballet Indiana”. We have added an additional large dance room, dancer’s lounge, and even a dance boutique, “La Petite Boîte”! We highly encourage our dancers to gain as much experience, education and performance opportunities as possible.
SBI strives to enrich the lives of students through the introduction and study of classical dance. In order for students to succeed as dancers, the school assembles a select faculty of highly qualified professionals each year and a curriculum that combines discipline and enjoyment in equal measure. Through quality facilities, a dedicated team and effective programs, SBI aims to challenge each student to their fullest potential and to discover a deeper love for the art of dance.
In addition to long-term and short-term training, students of SBI have had the opportunity to participate, successfully, in some of the world’s largest student ballet competitions such as Youth America Grand Prix, World Ballet Competition, Indianapolis City Ballet Dance Competition, World Ballet Competition, etc. Many of our students have placed, not only in the Top3, but also in the Top 12 in Classical and Contemporary.
Here at SBI, moving into our new, bright, spacious dance studios marks an important step into our future. Our goals are to remain one of the leading ballet schools in the Tri-State, and to continue to improve our performance everyday.
