About The Georgia Ballet
Founded in 1960 by Marietta native Iris Hensley, The Georgia Ballet is a non-profit organization committed to inspiring the public through professional ballet performance, unparalleled dance training and meaningful community outreach. We are continuously growing to meet the needs of the community while fulfilling our reputation as an outstanding arts organization.
Conservatory programs provide a unique opportunity for intermediate to advanced students to receive an accelerated and diverse dance curriculum during the daytime. Students will train 3 hours a day during the week, with optional additional hours on Saturdays or during the evening. They will also be afforded the opportunity to perform with The Georgia Ballet Professional Company and compete at Youth America Grand Prix (YAGP) and/or Universal Ballet Competition (UBC).
The curriculum is thoughtfully designed to provide a base of strong classical ballet technique with additional classes in disciplines such as pointe, repertoire, character, contemporary, modern, jazz, musical theater, dance history, anatomy and others.
