About the Academy

As the only non-profit ballet and dance school in the Napa Valley, we are committed to offering students in the North Bay region a high quality, nurturing, and disciplined dance education that fosters the love of dance.

Founded in 2008 and operated by our families and an all-volunteer board, the Napa Valley Ballet Academy is dedicated to enriching the youth of our community by providing a safe harbor and a structured environment. We are committed to maintaining high standards of technical training, fostering the love for dance as an art form, and promoting individual growth, respect, and personal discipline.

Our curriculum is designed for both the serious student seeking a career in dance as well as for the student who wants the benefits of dance training that will last a lifetime.

In the coming years Napa Valley Ballet aspires to create the region’s first professional ballet company working in partnership with the students and a Pre-Professional division of NVB, keeping in mind the three big “E’s.” Dance and theater are required to Entertain, Educate, and Enlighten. The Napa Valley is ready for such a cultural and artistic entity.
