The School of Roanoke Ballet Theatre offers classes in ballet technique for children and adults, pointe, partnering, modern, jazz, tap, yoga and acrobatics. These classes are open to all students. The ballet school of Roanoke Ballet Theatre is divided into two sections: The Informal School and the Formal School. Students who are interested in taking one or two classes a week to stay in shape or for fun are members of the Informal School. Students who audition for and are accepted into the City Youth Ballet are part of the Formal School. These students attend classes multiple days of the week, are serious about their dance training, and show interest in pursuing dance as a career. RBT maintains professional faculty in addition to guest faculty who teach workshops and master classes.
