Our academy features four distinct companies, each catering to dancers eager to delve deeper into their craft. Hinsdale Ballet Theatre, comprising Company, Apprentice, and Trainee positions, is an internationally renowned ballet company. It has earned accolades such as YAGP Outstanding School & Teachers, YAGP Finals placements, and top honors from ADC/IBC, among others.
Junior Company offers diverse opportunities, including space for young dancers to explore both ballet and contemporary disciplines. Hinsdale Dance Project Elite is a company tailored for those with a preference for jazz, and Petite Dance Company offers an introductory platform for 5/6 year old dancers. We hold high expectations for our company members' commitment and their readiness to learn as they begin each year.
Beyond dance, these lessons hold value for life. Whether a student aspires to be a professional dancer or simply seeks to enjoy dancing and performing through high school, our support will accompany them every step of the way.
