Ballet Bloch is located on the North Shore of Vancouver BC. The ballet school offers the very best in pure classical ballet training, together with ballet body sculpting derived from the principles of Gyrotonic® and Pilates. Students experience an intense, individual approach in classes of small numbers, allowing the dancer the opportunity to pay attention to detail and work in an environment with like-minded human beings.
At Ballet Bloch, ballet is not only taught as a visual art where a dancer learns to create aesthetic line, shape, and form, but is also experienced as somatic-based physics promoting psycho-physical (mind-body) well-being. Ballet Bloch trains dancers as ‘artistic-athletes’, pushing through limitations, to achieve the highest standards of technical ability of each individual body, whilst developing the art of creative expression in classical and contemporary styles of dance.
Programs are available for ages 3yrs+ to 22yrs.
Our Professional students experience a unique opportunity similar to a professional ballet company where classical full-length ballets are reimagined and performed. World-renowned choreographers are commissioned to create these works and the collaboration between a professional artist and student is developed.
Our Repertoire includes Paquita, Swan Lake, Les Sylphides, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Giselle, The Nutcracker, Romeo&Juliet, and Alice in Wonderland. The Nutcracker is performed every year in December and we encourage students from all over Vancouver to participate.
