About MBSA

Milwaukee Ballet School & Academy provides exceptional dance training in an encouraging and professional environment. An education in ballet teaches more than how to pointe your toes. Students learn poise, teamwork, and discipline – skills that lead to success both on stage and off. We strive to make ballet available to all who wish to dance, regardless of background, experience, or age. Join us!
