ABOUT 
Dallas Ballet Center

POSITIVE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT

The Dallas Ballet Center creates a positive learning environment within eight spacious and professionally-designed studios, where nurturing faculty teach all dance disciplines in the most effective, safe, and productive manner, encouraging students to excel to their full potential.

HIGH-LEVEL PERFORMANCES

The Dallas Ballet Center is well known known for its high caliber productions and full-length ballets, all enhanced by professional quality sets, choreography, lighting design, and elaborate costumes.  Artistic directors Brent and Judy Klopfenstein are committed to offering students performing opportunities of the highest quality not only for the benefit of their dance education and stage experience, but also for their development as future arts patrons.  Dallas Ballet Center students also participate in productions of the Dallas Ballet Company, a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization, founded by the Klopfensteins in 1989 to provide further pathways for pre-professional dancers to perform for the community.

TECHNICAL DANCE CLASSES

The Dallas Ballet Center’s curriculum provides students with a strong technical foundation and strives to produce dancers well-rounded in strength, stamina and flexibility, all while fostering their growth as performing artists. The school’s ballet classes are divided into three divisions: pre-school, elementary, and pre-professional, in order to help students practice proper classical technique appropriately according to their age and ability.  Classes emphasize the importance of correct placement, connectivity of movement, overall agility, and performing ability.
