Ballet des Amériques – a pre-professional dance conservatory and professional dance company established in Port Chester in 2011, serving Westchester County, the greater New York City area and the world beyond. Ballet des Amériques – the Ballet of the Americas – is based on an integrative concept that is as old as the oldest and most renowned continuously operating institutions of dance the world. It draws on rich traditions, while opening our minds to the future. It combines the rigors of classical ballet training with a broad education in the various facets of the performing arts. It calls for hard work and self-discipline, while maintaining an emphasis on the enjoyment of dance and the development of the whole individual. Your commitment to join us will be rewarded by witnessing the growth in your children’s confidence, in the skills they develop and in the breadth of their cultural awareness. The professional dance company of Ballet des Amériques serves our community of students and audiences as a beacon of world-embracing and world-class dance.
