The Washington School of Ballet offers ballet classes and training for ages 3.5 and up – at our NW campus on Wisconsin Ave, our SE campus at THEARC, and virtually!
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and with great consideration for our students and staff, The Washington School of Ballet (TWSB) will hold all Fall/Winter programs in a virtual format only. Classes are interactive with faculty observing each student. Our creative team is working on ways to modify variations and choreography for various spaces.
