TRADITION. PASSION. PERFORMANCE.

We provide exceptional, authentic classical ballet and contemporary dance training.

Since 1950, the Virginia Ballet Company has been instilling students with the life skills of self-discipline and self-confidence through rigorous training and performance opportunities. We focus on continuing the rich tradition of classical choreography by instructing our dancers on the history of dance, its pioneers, and its methods of instruction.

They provide flexible agendas to align the expectations. Teachers give equal attention to all students. All VBC respect all the cultures which is extremely important for me. We are very happy to be a part of VBC family.
We love Virginia ballet company school! The dance teachers are wonderful and the studio is always clean and the front desk staff are great! I love that performance opportunities are available often but not required for anyone.

My toddler asks everyday if "ballet is open" so she can go to class. It is her favorite day of the week!

Appreciate the girls' camaraderie and teachers' nurturing discipline in classes. Also appreciate the accessibility of Mr. Alex as well as the fact that students are welcome at various entry points based on their interest, never too late to explore dance.

My daughter loves all the opportunities at VBC to perform. In addition to Nutcracker and spring concert they tour with dancers in the area giving a chance for the community to see them and for dancers to practice. At VBC my daughter feels more confident at dancing and I see great improvement throughout the year. The staff are very helpful and involved. The communication with parents is great! I highly recommend this studio to anyone interested in ballet!
VBC has given our dancers & our entire family an instant community. Our dancers have received excellent technique instruction while making friends in a supportive environment.

VBC is AMAZING! It is clear they have the right talent to teach the classes. They are very inclusive and encouraging to all students (my son was welcomed with open arms and has absolutely flourished in this environment thanks to the amazing staff, teachers, and volunteers). Their productions are very well done. And I feel that my child is in very safe and responsible hands. I HIGHLY recommend VBC to anybody interested in having their child learn ballet.
I love VBC and often recommend it to my mom friends whose children are interested in dance. The teachers are excellent and expect the dancers to follow rules and pay attention in class —you won’t see children running wild, but you will see them learning and having fun...

The teachers are excellent and expect the dancers to follow rules and pay attention in class—you won’t see children running wild, but you will see them learning and having fun. The Nutcracker performance is out of this world amazing and the other performances are also run professionally.
