General Information

Season Productions

Ballet Pensacola presents four major productions each season: a fall show, The Nutcracker in December, a winter show, and a spring show. Along with the four major productions, Ballet Pensacola gets involved with the community by performing in schools, area festivals, and special events. The Ballet Pensacola Academy students have the opportunity to perform with the professional company, and the students have their own Academy Student Showcase at the end of the school year. As Pensacola’s resident professional dance company, Ballet Pensacola is known for its high artistic quality and innovative productions showcasing classical and contemporary choreography. Performances are offered at various venues throughout the Pensacola community, including the Saenger Theatre and the Pensacola Cultural Center.

The Academy

The Ballet Pensacola Academy consists of a Youth Division and a Training Division. The Youth Division is for students ages 3-6 and the Training Division is for students ages 7-18. Students in the Youth Division are able to take Creative Dance and Pre-Ballet classes to learn rhythm, movement, and ballet basics while beginning to understand concepts of dance. The Training Division is divided into eight levels and is designed for students who wish to continue the study of dance up to an advanced level. Progression is based upon abilities, potential, and understanding instead of age. Upper-level students are eligible to audition for the Ballet Pensacola Youth Company. Students of the Academy have opportunities to train in ballet, modern, tap and jazz. Ballet Pensacola offers Summer Camps and Summer Intensives that are open to academy students, dancers in surrounding areas and across the nation! All Ballet Pensacola students are offered performance opportunities during the year. Ballet Pensacola is proud that our students are accepted into the most prestigious dance programs throughout the nation, and that many former students are currently working as dance professionals.
