“Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body” – Martha Graham

Over 30 Years of Quality Dance Instruction in Schaumburg, IL


Quality Dance Instruction Since 1985

Founded in 1985, Northwest Ballet Academy Ltd. provides quality ballet training for children, teens and adults throughout the northwestern suburbs of Chicago. Along with ballet, we offer jazz, modern, character and Pilates training.

We have a passion for all genres of dance, but it is our belief that ballet is the foundation of all other forms. That is why we teach proper ballet technique, coupled with a disciplined approach that includes personal correction; live, piano accompaniment; and instruction in ballet vocabulary, history and variations from the classical repertoire.

We are proud to have been named "2017 Best Dance Studio" by the Daily Herald
