Portland School of Ballet’s Young Dancer Program is designed for dancers age 3 to 7. The goal is to establish a sense of movement to music, and to develop dancers for the next stage of classical ballet training. 

At Portland School of Ballet, we want to create a fun and healthy environment for all students. Our faculty for the Young Dancers is dedicated to the needs of our youngest dancers, while at the same time preparing them for their next steps.
