From our early beginnings in 1960, The Perth School of Ballet has grown to become one of Perth’s leading classical ballet and dance schools.

We have dedicated and professional teachers with international, national and local experience as teachers or performers. We also have previous students on staff who share our love of dance.

The Perth School of Ballet offers a complete dance experience for the recreational or aspiring professional dancer.

Please feel free to get to know your child’s teacher. If you have any questions or concerns, we are always available before or after your child’s class.
