Testimonials

"I had the opportunity to watch all the folks of the school in action when I MC'd the Nutcracker at CFCC's new stage. The cast was enormous and Elizabeth and her crew really showed they knew what they were doing. Look for more great performances out of these talented pros. You won't be disappointed!!!"

-Daniel Seamans WWAY

"I have had two girls at WSB for a total of 17 years. Each of them has developed good technique and stage presence, a love of dance and music and an appreciation for hard work! The teachers are kind but mindful of technique, form and give individual attention. From princess level and beyond the girls have enjoyed the recitals, performances, Nutcracker, summer intensives, visiting choreographers and teachers and the friends that they have made along the way."

-Ava Trask

"I'm a mother of a 5 year old little girl, who is princess in every way. She began showing interest in wanting to take ballet this past summer, so I went on the hunt for the perfect studio for her. There are so many wonderful studios in Wilmington, so I knew it would not be a simple decision. We were first introduced to The Wilmington School of Ballet by one of their summer princess camps. We were so impressed by the staff, and even the preteen assistants that assisted the camp director. The level of professionalism, dignity, and class that was exhibited during the week of the camp, answered our question of which dance studio to choose. Not to mention our daughter loved her time there, and had a blast at the camp! We were highly impressed, and look forward to our daughter being a part of this dignified dance studio that is The Wilmington School of Ballet!"

"My daughter has attended Wilmington School of Ballet for 8 years, since the age of 4. We love the classical focus and variety of classes to support that focus. The best Nutcracker for children of all ages. We look forward to this holiday classic each year! Lots of master classes and performing opportunities to elevate dancers' stage presence."

-Amy Gordon

"My daughter came to Wilmington School of ballet 3 years ago (she was starting the 10th grade) after moving from Charlotte NC. She was a student at first but has been given the opportunity to assist teaching and choreograph for different events. I am very appreciative for the ongoing support and encouragement Elizabeth Hester {WSB owner) has given my daughter."

"We love this place! My daughter has been dancing here for 6 years. She is interested in a classical approach to ballet and that is what she gets at the studio. I like a modest aesthetic and have a desire to see her perform in art pieces, which she gets ample opportunity to do. We've had a great experience at Wilmington School of Ballet, the only classical dance conservatory in the area!"

-Lee Anna Stoker

 

"The Wilmington School of Ballet is a wonderful place to bring your children! 
The staff is warm and friendly, and children are taught in a way that makes them comfortable and excited! It is a very nurturing environment but also trendy and modern.
There are many different classes for everyone. My daughter wants to be apart of the Nutcracker so she is taking Choreography and also Hip Hop and Acero. I love how my daughters are comfortable because of how positive the teachers are about body image and everyone loving who they are!

I have experienced many different schools and really love how the focus WSB is on dance and being healthy and having fun and not dressing sexy or dancing provocatively.

Plus their Princess Camps are SUPER CUTE!!!"
