School of Atelier Ballet

Effective Midnight November 13, 2020 the School of Atelier Ballet will be closed as Toronto moves into a "Red Zone". The School of Atelier Ballet will reopen as soon as it is safe to do so

A unique ballet school housed in the historic St. Lawrence Hall, the School of Atelier Ballet offers instruction in ballet, modern dance and historical dance that is affordable and enjoyable for both the aspiring professional and recreational dancers of all ages. Instruction is provided by professional dancers in a caring, creative atmosphere with convenient class schedules. Many students have gone on to pursue further professional training with Canada’s National Ballet School, School of American Ballet, and Ryerson University Dance Department, and graduates have gone on to dance with companies such as Opera Atelier, The National Ballet of Canada, and Stratford Festival.

All of our students enter the School of Atelier Ballet through an assessment by the director and are provided with an individual placement.
