Ballet Schools in New Mexico - Albequerque

Ballet Theater of New Mexico and Dance Theater Southwest are both in Albuquerque. There may be other ballet schools in the city, but, to my knowledge, these are the biggest. I was in Albuquerque a couple of years ago and both schools were friendly and welcoming. I just called them before I got to town and explained my situation. I took some classes at each school and was happy with both the quality of the studios and the teaching.

does anyone know of any good preprofessional schools in Albquerque, NM?

I am from Albuquerque and now New England. New Mexico Ballet brings in great guest teachers and dancers. They perform with the symphony during Nutcracker and produce an incredible "Dracula". I waould call their style more "Balanchine".


Ballet Theatre of New Mexico is smaller, but warm and friendly. They follow a Vaganova style with reach into other techniques. They have several performances a year and often involve the young dancers with the newer original pieces. The are also involved with the schools.


The Public Academy for Performing Arts is a Charter School where students from both ( and other) pre-professional schools go for academics and classes. Lana Kroth is their dance director and is a good neutral source for what is current today. Give them a call.
