We are a classical ballet school in the west of Pembroke Pines passionate about forming ballet dancers. We work hard because we love what we do and because that is the only way to achieve excellence.
At our school, students of all ages and abilities have a unique opportunity to study the traditions and discipline of this beautiful art, and those with serious aspirations and aptitudes to become professional dancers get the intense training they need to achieve their goals.
Some of our dancers have won outstanding awards in international competitions after many, many hours of hard work by them and us.
Those students whose paths lead to non-dance careers gain immeasurably from having studied at Pembroke Ballet. They develop self-motivation, self-discipline, poise, grace, physical adroitness and an appreciation for the arts, which they will carry with them throughout their lives.
Our students are placed in one of six divisions according to age and ability. They follow a structured sequence of training stages designed to develop their muscular abilities, technical skills, and artistic presentation. Our program incudes classes in contemporary dance and pointe work for girls that have the required physical maturity and technique.
Inherent in our teaching is constant, on the spot, corrections, which has proven to be very effective in communicating to the student the problems affecting her performance. We verbally and physically guide student to ensure proper body alignment and placement to perform specific ballet steps and ultimately project the beauty of her dance.
The academy also operates a summer intensive program where students receive 8 hours of intensive ballet and modern dance training together with physical training by our gymnastics teacher.
Every year, we put together a big production of a classical ballet. We have already performed Don Quixote and The Nutcracker to full theaters, and we are working right now on a Swan Lake production for our next show. Our students always play all the roles and they experience the performing arts from the perspective of a professional ballet company. Everybody loves our shows, the parents, the friends, the random spectator, and most importantly, the artists that make it —our dancers. We always end up exhausted, but happy and proud for having delivered a great show.
