We are thrilled to offer our new session of classes at Mendocino Ballet including Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, and Modern Dance! We have a new Contemporary Dance class for ages 7-9 on Tuesday from 4:30-5:15 pm and a Jazz /Contemporary Ballet class for ages 8-12 on Wednesdays from 4:00-5:00 pm, both taught by Mendocino Ballet Company Dancer, Hannah Woolfenden.

Our program provides professional dance training and performance opportunities in a positive, non-competitive and safe learning environment with an age appropriate curriculum. Instructors bring years of professional dance training and performance experience, along with their passion for dance, to the classroom. Family friendly waiting areas provide a safe place to watch classes. Students will have the chance to show off what they have learned in special performances for families and friends including our annual "Nutcracker", Spring and Year-end performances. Students in classes for ages 5-7 and up will have the opportunity to perform in our year-end performance of “Dance Classics” which will be held on June 1 & 2, 2019 at the Mendocino College Center Theater. A $35 Costume Inventory/Cleaning Fee is charged for each dance. (Remember, students enrolled in the Art of Classical Ballet program do not pay this fee. These students pay an annual Performance Fee.) Students enrolled in the Pre-Ballet classes for ages 3-5 (6) will have the opportunity to perform in an informal studio performance for families and friends. Date to be announced.
