Welcome to City Ballet Raleigh! Your dancer(s) and you are about to start a productive year with our program, whether you take ballet, pointe, modern, tap, or jazz. City Ballet Raleigh’s goals are to nurture a love of movement, music, and performance while training dancers through a structured syllabus that builds their technical expertise and their physical strength. Because of this, a season with City Ballet Raleigh has a distinct pattern that seeks to accomplish these goals for dancers over the course of a dance year.
A year of regular classes runs from mid-August to mid-May. Summer classes are offered in May, June, July, and August. Dancers who have previously studied with City Ballet Raleigh will use their teacher’s recommendations as to class level; new students should consult with City Ballet Raleigh’s Directors, Andrew Lamar and Cherilyn Joy Lee, as to their best placement. Many students choose to take classes in more than one discipline (ballet, pointe, modern, tap, jazz, hip hop).
