Ballet Central New Jersey (BalletCNJ) strives to offer your dancer an immersive opportunity to learn from former professional ballet dancers that emphasize pure classical technique. This experience is enhanced by invaluable opportunities to perform in professional quality productions each year to showcase their skills as well as compete in prestigious international competitions.  


Our goal is to provide the highest quality ballet training to every student because we believe they all deserve the best instruction possible, regardless of their interest in professional dance or socio-economic background. Through the artistry of dance, BalletCNJ instills confidence, passion and dedication in each of its students for lasting value throughout their lives.


Our long term vision is to offer dance education for all and to build a community that holds an appreciation and respect for the performing arts. Through offering many performance opportunities, we hope to motivate, inspire, teach, and build confidence for our students. We want to place Central New Jersey on the map nationally and globally by showcasing the talents of this area.

Philosophy of Training

BalletCNJ believes in a challenging progression of training that inspires students to reach their true potential and go far beyond. Discover & Develop and Foundation & Technique students (ages 3-9) are placed according to their age in order to allow for proper physical development through these crucial young years. It introduces them to fundamentals, musicality, coordination and discipline. Refinement and Artistry students (ages 10 +) are placed according to their skill level and knowledge of dance. After transitioning into Refinement and Artistry, BalletCNJ exposes students to a wide range of classes which compliment and develop their ballet technique and artistry. 


Our Conservatory Programs offer students the chance to get the attention they need to improve and achieve their goals. These classes have limited spots available to keep class sizes small and to provide an even greater consideration to the individual needs of each student. These programs are designed and recommended for serious students who want to expose themselves to the world of dance and who seek a career as a professional dancer.
