About the Lexington School of Ballet

The Lexington School of Ballet was established to provide the highest quality dance training available, offering an outstanding faculty of Boston's finest and most dedicated teachers.

Whether students are pursuing a career in ballet or studying for their own personal enrichment, the Lexington School of Ballet encourages them to reach their full potential as dancers and as individuals while striving to meet the high standards of today's ballet world. Our mission is to instill a respect for the traditions of ballet by introducing the principles of each step with order, progression, and increasing complexity. Students are encouraged to work diligently and cooperatively to develop their own creativity and individual artistry. Personal attention and proper class placement ensure the orderly advancement of each of our students.

Students trained at Lexington School of Ballet are dancing with modern and ballet companies throughout the country. Many are also accepted each year into prestigious apprentice and summer programs, including American Ballet Theatre, Joffrey Ballet, School of American Ballet (New York City Ballet), San Francisco Ballet and Royal Academy of Dancing, London. At the same time, students pursuing serious dance training at LSB have also maintained excellent academic records, allowing them admittance to some of the country's most competitive schools. Recent LSB graduates are currently attending Harvard, Barnard, Cornell, Brown and Columbia Universities.

The Lexington School of Ballet encourages our students to use the art of dance to help enrich the community. Recent outreach programs have included yearly fund raising performances for Children's Hospital Boston; a performance where all proceeds benefited Aids Research at the Dana Farber Cancer Institute; local nursing home performances for the elderly; clothing drives; and scholarship classes for special needs students.

We, as faculty, are proud of all of our students and their many accomplishments. We seek to foster creativity, confidence, and artistry in our students, whether they are embarking on careers in professional dance or studying for the pure joy of dancing.
