About Tampa Bay Ballet

Tampa Bay Ballet was founded in 2008 by Lindsay Clark and is the official school of the professional ballet company, Tampa Ballet Theatre, which was named the resident ballet company of Ruth Eckerd Hall in 2015. Tampa Bay Ballet's mission is to provide the highest standard of dance instruction for students to give them a strong foundation for their professional dance careers. Tampa Bay Ballet believes that a solid foundation in ballet is the key to any dancer's aspirations.

The school follows a structured ballet curriculum, following a unique syllabus developed by the director, but also offers classes in other dance forms. The school accepts students, beginning at age 3, of all levels of study. Students receive traditional classroom training from trained professional Tampa Ballet Theatre Company dancers.

Through auditions, students are given the chance to perform alongside their talented instructors in Tampa Ballet Theatre's professional productions.
