The mission of School of Cleveland Ballet is to educate its students by offering them quality training and intensive instruction in the highly structured and disciplined techniques of ballet and its related arts.  This training creates a refined sensitivity and developed appreciation for the unique art of classical ballet among the students of the school’s three divisions:  Community,  PreProfessional, and Trainee program.
