The physical, emotional and spiritual benefits of ballet training are profound. Ballet as an art stays with a person throughout life as a force of inspiration and dignity, opening windows of knowledge about history, music and human aspirations. Our school offers an inspiring and beautiful space for students as well as parents to enjoy dance classes with a coffee bar, reading area and open observation lounge.

Knowing a little about ballet is different from knowing how to teach ballet properly. Victor School of Performing Arts approaches the grand art of Ballet with an expertise that comes from the highest levels of performance in the United States. Our mission is to present real ballet, not an imitation, sharing the training regimen and know-how obtained through legendary teachers and dancing onstage with stars like Mikhail Baryshnikov. Experience dancing with American Ballet Theatre in New York City gives Director Joy Victor an authority on how ballet classes should be taught, and how young dancers should progress. VPA specializes in expert ballet instruction for ages 5 and up including adult ballet.
