Mission

The University of Iowa Youth Ballet and Community Dance School fosters the love, practice and instruction of movement as an integral part of health and well-being. The program also encourages and nurtures artistic expression. We are committed to providing appropriate and challenging classes for all ability levels across dance disciplines. The UI Youth Ballet and Community Dance School is dedicated to developing strong, well-rounded dancers and future teachers of dance.

History

Since its establishment in 1972, the University of Iowa Youth Ballet and Community Dance School has stood as a superior community outreach program, training aspiring dancers within Iowa City and the surrounding communities.

The school has a full range of programs for all ages. The experience instills in students self-discipline and an eagerness to learn. We are housed in Halsey Hall, and share six spacious studios with the University of Iowa Department of Dance.

The University of Iowa Youth Ballet and Community Dance School faculty includes distinguished instructors and choreographers as well as current and former dancers from major companies worldwide.

We welcome talented students, faculty, and staff from diverse backgrounds. The school does not discriminate in its admissions procedures, employment policies or the administration of its programs and activities on the basis of race, creed, color, religion, national origin, age, sex, pregnancy, disability, genetic information, status as a U.S. veteran, service in the U.S. military, sexual orientation, gender identity, associational preferences, or any other classification that deprives the person of consideration as an individual.
