Get Personalized Training

from our Boutique Coaching Program

Join the most exceptional pre-professional classical ballet training in Central Florida: The Ballet Conservatory at Skyra.  This elite, boutique program for talented, highly-motivated dancers training for a career in classical ballet or concert dance is the most rigorous, comprehensive, and personalized program in the greater Orlando area.  In addition to intensive, impeccable classical ballet training, our students practice strength and conditioning on a daily basis for injury prevention in addition to training extensively in contemporary work and other dance styles. This unique approach creates dancers who are extremely versatile and well-prepared to tackle both classical and contemporary company repertoire. At The Ballet Conservatory at Skyra, we understand that dancers have a very limited window of years during which excellent training is critical. Our focus is always on the long game: a lasting and rewarding career in dance.  

Our program runs August through May. Dancers in the program train six days per week, with breaks for academics.  Students in the Conservatory program are homeschooled; much of the training for these dancers happens during the day, with some additional classes in the evening.  In this exclusive environment, students will form friendships and bonds with like-minded individuals who share the same passion, drive, and determination for a professional dance career.  Admission is strictly by audition or personal invitation only.
