American Midwest Ballet School (AMB School)

AMB School is the official school of American Midwest Ballet, the region’s professional dance company.

AMB School offers classes for children, teens, and adults of all levels through two specially designed divisions:

    • Community Division
      offers a wide selection of dance classes for all ages in a fun and nurturing environment
    • Academy Division
      provides a structured curriculum for aspiring dancers committed to achieving a high level of technical skill

Our knowledgeable and experienced faculty is comprised of many current and former professional dancers. Students enjoy numerous performance opportunities through both divisions of AMB School and through these exciting programs:

    • Junior Company – a prestigious pre-professional company for advanced  ballet students
    • Ensemble – a student performance group presenting dances in a range of styles
    • Solo Program – a chance for dancers to hone their skills and gain performance experience at Youth America Grand Prix or other competitive dance programs

AMB School students have the unique opportunity to perform alongside our professional dancers in AMB’s The Nutcracker and other productions.

During the summer months, students can further their dance studies through two programs:

    • Summer Intensive – an immersive training experience for pre-professional dancers from around the region
    • Summer Dance Series – a variety of fun classes that complement the school year curriculum
