The School Of Alberta Ballet Professional Division

Private School

The School of Alberta Ballet is the official training centre of Alberta Ballet. With facilities, including classrooms and studios, in the heart of downtown Calgary and a residence that provides a home away from home for out of province and international students, the School of Alberta Ballet provides each student with the dance, life and academic skills to launch a professional career.

The School of Alberta Ballet's Professional Division is a full-time dance and academic training program for students in grades 7 through 12. The School also offers a Professional Graduate program for post-secondary students requiring an additional year of training before auditioning for Alberta Ballet II.

Admission to the School of Alberta Ballet’s Professional Division is solely talent-based with successful candidates being chosen through our Summer Intensive, via the annual International Audition Tour. Scholarships must be applied for separately. 

In the summer of 2016, the School of Alberta Ballet started a new and exciting partnership with the National Ballet School of Canada, launching a partnership through an annual student exchange. This partnership will bring students of both schools access to different teachers, styles and approaches, encourgaing further growth and experience for our students.
