“I absolutely love the ballet program at SPS. It focuses on not only developing your technique, but also your artistry. It helps you grow as a person.”

The Company

Serious dancers may audition for the St. Paul’s School Ballet Company (SPSBC), a year-round program that can be substituted for athletic participation at the varsity level. SPSBC dancers work one-on-one with faculty and guest teachers and choreographers, rehearsing daily throughout the academic calendar, and performing four different programs each school year, including classical and contemporary works. 

SPS graduates have gone on to dance at The Juilliard School, Barnard College, Columbia University, Harvard University, Stanford University, Yale University, Princeton University, Wellesley College, University of Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, University of Michigan Department of Musical Theater, and Vassar College and professionally with New York City Ballet, Mikhail Baryshnikov’s White Oak Dance Project, Jose Limon Dance Company, Lar Lubovitch, Batsheva Dance Company, Twyla Tharp, Louisville Ballet, Carolina Ballet, and Scapino Ballet Rotterdam, to name a few.
