The Academy of Nevada Ballet Theatre (ANBT) is the official school of Nevada Ballet Theatre and the premier ballet and dance training center of Southern Nevada. Founded in 1979, the Academy is guided by a commitment to excellence, offering training in many forms of dance with classes for students 18 months of age through adult. The Academy is housed in a 36,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility, offering the highest standard of artistic education taught by distinguished and world-renowned instructors. ANBT follows a structured sequence of training stages designed to increase technical skills, stamina and discipline in accordance with age and individual physical development. The fundamentals of dance training include: technique, coordination, muscle development, strength, body awareness, flexibility, musicality, and artistic expression. Inherent to dance training, corrections are essential; therefore, students are guided verbally and physically by instructors to ensure proper body alignment and body placement. Dance education is an ongoing process that continues throughout a dancer’s career; students whose lives lead to non-dance careers garner invaluable skills of discipline, dedication, poise and a life-long appreciation for the arts.

Programs Offered

The Academy of Nevada Ballet Theatre offers two tracks for students: the Pre-Professional Ballet Program, for students with a desire to dance in a professional ballet company or who wish to focus on classical ballet training; and the Pre-Professional Dance Program, for students who wish to explore a more entertainment-focused and commercial dance path.
