Bayou City Ballet School provides exceptional ballet training in a small school setting in West Houston. Founder and Director Alex Pandiscio has created a classically-based ballet curriculum updated for the twenty-first century. The school prepares aspiring young men and women for a life both in and beyond dance by teaching the values of commitment, kindness, and hard work. In addition to ballet, students take classes in contemporary, improvisation, variations, anatomy, and music. The School’s Children’s Program begins at age five with Pre-Ballet and Primary Classes. Starting at age eight, students enter the Pre-Professional Program where they are placed in levels based on ability, not age. The school also offers classes and workshops for adult learners.
