The Chicago Ballet Center seeks to implement a hybrid of artistry, athleticism, and culture within the diverse communities of Chicago to help young people grow and develop as mature individuals, creative artists, and thoughtful community members.
The Chicago Ballet Center works to nurture the creativity, physical and artistic development of young people through a rigorous dance curriculum, inclusive of all forms of dance and movement.
The Chicago Ballet Center understands the correlation between creativity and social/emotional/intellectual development . We believe in offering age appropriate challenges, that lead to a solid foundation of dance technique in a safe and nurturing environment.

My daughter started dance at CBC at age eleven and has gained so much confidence, strength, and grace—she loves coming to class.
Class at CBC has been awesome! My daughter’s passion for ballet and skill level have continued to increase each year at CBC. Mr. A. is highly respected and admired by my daughter, and in her words: ‘He’s the best ballet teacher there is!’ When she’s happy, I’m happy. Thank you Mr. A!
All three of my daughters have completely fallen in love with dance and with Mr. A and the teachers at Chicago Ballet Center.
