Our Company Experience

We have four companies, each with a different focus, for the dancer who want to dive deeper into their craft. Hinsdale Ballet Theatre (with Company, Apprentice and Trainee positions) is our internationally acclaimed ballet company, with awards including YAGP Outstanding School & Teachers, YAGP Finals placements, top medals from ADC/IBC and many more. Our other companies include space for young dancers to explore the ballet and contemporary disciplines equally, a company for our more jazz focused dancers, as well as an introduction to the stage for our 5/6 year old dancers. We expect our company members to have a high level of commitment, and to start each year with a readiness to learn. Dance lessons are life lessons, so whether the student's goal is to become a professional dancer, or if they wish to simply just dance and perform all the way through high school, we will help them every step of the way.
