Funds raised through ticket sales support the Wilmington Ballet Company, our non-profit affiliate. 

The US International Ballet is our professional affiliate. As an affiliate school of a professional ballet company, students have the advantage of being a part of professional productions.

Year round option - WSB offers a year round budget option. This allows dancers the option to study year round with an inexpensive and flexible summer schedule. Dancers who take the year round option will pay a small fee each month during the year. Year round dancers will have ballet lessons available all summer and a summer concert.

Our mission at the Wilmington School of Ballet is to use ballet as a tool to nurture health, confidence, kindness, and discipline in each dancer. This is achieved by excellent classroom instruction and theatrical performance opportunities. We value and strive to teach technical excellence, overall wellness, creative artistry, character development, & community service. To help achieve our goals, we offer dance lessons & ballet classes to both youth and adults in the Wilmington, NC (Cape Fear) area which include pointe; pre-pointe, ballet, tap, jazz, choreography, kids only classes, pre-school classes, and so much more!
