BW Institute

Ballet Wichita Institute

Ballet Wichita offers ongoing classes at the Ballet Wichita Studio, located at 1600 W. Douglas.  The Institute, a training program that focuses on classical ballet technique offers classes for students who are just beginning ballet (as young as 8 years) to dancers who’s pointe shoes have been long neglected, to those of us who have always been interested and are finally ready to take that big step and finally enroll in a ballet class.

For the serious dance students, our highly trained faculty will work to inspire the whole student to be both an accomplished dancer and a healthy, strong, confident athlete.  Students will experience a structured curriculum in a nurturing and positive environment, targeting and exploring each student’s strengths and abilities.  At the Institute, we offer a multi-skill level system, providing students with a unique curriculum allowing them to observe and learn from each other.

In addition to classical ballet classes, we have two fitness classes (see descriptions below) that incorporate many of the fundamentals of ballet for an extremely effective work out.  No dance experience is required for either of these classes, though they are highly recommended and beneficial for all dancers.

Bring a willingness to try something new and challenge your mind and body, we can’t wait to start working out and dancing with you!
