Where Every Family Matters

School of Nashville Ballet Kids’ Classes

The School of Ballet offers a variety of dance instruction to children as young as 2. Enrollment is now open for the spring 2020 semester.

Dance is a great way to instill a love of movement in young kids. The Children's Division of the School of Nashville Ballet offers five select class offerings to kids ages 2 – 8. The spring semester begins Monday, Jan. 13, and enrollment is now underway.

Here's something extra fun: All kids who enroll in the spring children's classes by Dec. 2 will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win the opportunity to present flowers to the Sugar Plum Fairy during the curtain call at a performance of Nashville's Nutcracker.
