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 3 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.

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!
