Academy of Ballet is the official school of Tucson Regional Ballet and has been offering quality pre-professional instruction in Ballet, Pointe, Tap, & Jazz for 40 years! Despite the pandemic, Academy of Ballet continued to offer live and virtual classes throughout 2020 and 2021, and presented five full-length performances during the 2020-2021 Season in conjunction with TRB, each show carefully crafted for dancer and audience safety. The fall session crafted under Brittany De Grofft’s leadership is currently in progress, and new dancers are welcome at any time. Please visit the Academy of Ballet website to find out more about our classes for children and adults! No experience is necessary; dancers with prior training may audition for placement in the school and company.
